Charles Gauvin: “Restoring Brook Trout Habitat and Bolstering Climate Resilience in the Upper Androscoggin Watershed”
Charles Gauvin, former CEO of Trout Unlimited national
and current advisor to the Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust, will discuss Maine’s Kennebago
River native brook trout at the November meeting of the Merrymeeting Bay Chapter of Trout Unlimited.
Charles served as head of TU national from 1991-2010 and is a veteran environmental activist
and lawyer. A long-time Maine resident, Charles focuses on land conservation for the future of
Maine’s brook trout and all native wildlife. He will draw on that experience in his presentation to

Brook Trout Watershed.”
