April 2019 Meeting
Future Health of Fletcher’s Cove Still in the Balance
Fletcher’s Cove, one of the most popular access points for local fishing, has had to weather a lot of changes over the past few years as a result of first, silting, and then extensive damage from storms and flooding last fall. The Friends of Fletcher’s Cove (FFC) have been spearheading work with the National Park Service to keep this resource accessible and fish friendly. Most recently, FFC lead a successful effort with dozens of volunteers to clear away debris from last fall’s storms and restore the Cove to prepare for the season.
Rob Catalanotto, our April speaker, will give us an update on the recent work and the outlook for the Cove’s health going forward. Rob has been with FFC since the Fall of 2018, working to engage federal and local government stakeholders. Growing up, Rob spent five summers working at the boathouse, where he learned to fish and appreciate the value of outdoor recreation. Rob also works full-time for Trout Unlimited in the Government Affairs Department.
