“The last stronghold for the Eastern brook trout and the habitat of our remarkable watershed will require leadership.”
Those are the words of Roger Auclair, a first generation fisheries biologist for Maine’s Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife whose career spanned 60 years at Moosehead Lake and the North Woods. Auclair was recently honored by the Forest Society of Maine and offered comments at the FSM reception that are enlightening, sobering, and important for all who value Maine’s native brook trout.
Roger’s comments on leadership were directed at FSM’s leaders. “The Forest Society of Maine has an important role,” he said. “It works with many people to form strong, cooperative arrangements, to keep the best of what we have.”
