Guided walk through Red Brook
Join members of the Southeastern Massachusetts Chapter of Trout Unlimited at 10:00 AM on May 22 as we walk along Red Brook and celebrate the brook’s restoration and reconnection to Buttermilk Bay’s marine environment. Between 2006 and 2009 four dams were removed from Red Brook for the purpose of restoring the brook’s ecological functions; vital stream functions that include natural sediment transport and unimpeded passage for migratory fish. We’ll explore the old dam sites along Red Brook and discuss how they hindered the migration of herring, American eels and Red Brook’s iconic salter brook trout. We’ll also talk about the migratory fish species that visit Red Brook over the course of the year, and how they depend upon the brook’s productivity. We will show how, by removing dams, even small dams like those that were once at Red Brook, we can rejoin watersheds to the larger, interconnected ecosystems that those watersheds play an important role in. Meet at 10:00 AM at the Trustees of Reservation’s Lyman Reserve parking lot off of Head of the Bay Road on the Plymouth/Wareham town line.
