Return to Sackett Brook

The Sackett Brook Restoration Project seeks to return Sackett Brook to its original free-flowing state in order to benefit native coldwater fish species such as brook trout and the state-listed wood turtle, by removing a 1930s-era concrete dam and bridge.

In this outdoor session, participants will collect, identify and release macroinvertebrates and fish captured in Sackett Brook and compare the results to what species were present before the dam was dismantled.

Join us for this free event on Saturday, May 17, from 1 to 2:30 p.m., at Canoe Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary in Pittsfield, Mass. Wear boots or shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. Registration is required. Call 413-637-0320 to sign up.
