Note: This event has been postponed indefinitely. 

Please join the Woods Hole Research Center for a community lecture, “Science on the Fly: Uniting Anglers and Scientists for Healthy Rivers.”

Rivers constantly whisper their stories through their changing chemistry, but the stories are only ever known if the samples are collected that allow the stories to be heard!

WHRC Deputy Director Max Holmes will introduce Science on the Fly, an exciting new partnership led by the Woods Hole Research Center and Fishpond, LLC. The project brings together the fly fishing and science communities to study and protect rivers and their watersheds. Science on the Fly includes fishing guides, fly shops, outfitters, lodges, and individual anglers. It began in Massachusetts and Colorado, expanded to Alaska, is eyeing the Amazon, and has a global vision.

Light reception at 5:30 pm. Presentation at 6:00 pm.

Thanks to Fishpond, WHRC will be giving away over $500 worth of Fishpond gear to a few randomly selected recipients at the presentation!
