RCHS: Secrets of the Onesquethau

The Ravena Coeymans Historical Society is very pleased to present Roy Lamberton to our audience on Sunday, May 18th at our meeting at the Village Hall in Ravena. Roy is a resident of East Berne and is a retired professional engineer. He worked for New York State in utility regulation for 22 years.

Roy enjoys telling how he was introduced to fishing by his grandfather as soon as he could walk. He began serious trout fishing 55 years ago. He joined Trout Unlimited (TU) in the mid 1970's and became increasingly aware of conservation and environmental concerns. He represented the Trout Unlimited group in the formation of the Onesquethau Coeymans Watershed Council (OCWC) in partnership with the Audubon Society of New York, and in other community groups. Currently, he is involved working on an attempt to obtain formal recreational public access to the creek in the Town of Bethlehem.
