Don’t forget to reserve your oyster stew dinner tickets! The Westport Fishermen’s Association is hosting its Oyster Stew Dinner and Annual Meeting on February 9th at St. John the Baptist Church, 945 Main Rd., Westport.
Doors open at 6 PM and stew will be served at 6:30. Reservations for the dinner are $15 each and can be made online at http://westportriver.org/oyster-stew-dinner/ or by check mailed to WFA, PO Box 83, Westport Pt, MA 02791. Deadline for reservation is February 5, 2016.
The evening’s featured speakers from Trout Unlimited will give an update on local sea- run brook trout streams and recent protection efforts in Westport. Sea-run brook trout are becoming even rarer along the Massachusetts coast, especially with the recent loss of Cape Cod’s Santuit River population.
Westport is still a haven for the trout, but the risks are many. Come find out about the threats to their survival and what is being done to protect them. The presentation, which will begin around 7:30 after a short WFA business meeting, is free and open to the public.
