Cornwall, N.Y. - Saturday and Sunday, March 31 and April 1, from noon to 4 p.m., the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum will be hosting Trout Weekend at the Museum's Wildlife Education Center, 25 Boulevard, Cornwall-on-Hudson. Brook Trout are New York State's freshwater fish. "Brookies" require cold, clean, well oxygenated water to survive. A highly sensitive fish, Brook Trout are sometimes referred to as an "indicator" species, their disappearance from our waters can alert us to changes in water system. In celebration of this two day event, activities will include: Special "Meet the Animals" at 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. with live fish presentations, Brookie feeding time at 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. On Saturday only enjoy an ongoing demonstration of the art of Fly Tying given by Joe Rist, NYS Licensed Fly Fishing Guide. Visitors will also enjoy crafts and activities on both days. Admission: $3, Members are free. Special thanks for this exhibit to: Hudson River Improvement Fund, Black Rock Forest.
