Summer's over and we return to the Farm & Home Center and our usual meeting time to hear Jeff Skelding, a Director of Friends of the Upper Delaware tell us about the conservation & restoration work being done on that terrific trout fishery. Jeff grew up on the Delaware and is an avid fly fisherman and long-time professional conservationist. While a fundamental objective of FUDR is to protect the fishery and its habitat for our sporting passion, the organization, led by its dedicated Board of Directors, has also established a broader presence and mission. FUDR cares about the people and the communities of the upper Delaware region and is committed to an agenda that is sensitive to the needs and desires of the people who live here, seeks to improve the economic health of the region, and works to protect and restore the tremendous natural resources values of this region. Comprehensive watershed protection must address a mosaic of often complex economic, social, cultural and ecological considerations. That’s hard work. But with increasing frequency, this integrated approach is producing results across the country that benefit people, communities, wildlife, and water quality.
