Ridgefield Library to host Soundkeeper Bill Lucey Thursday, May 31

Soundkeeper Bill Lucey will give an update on the health of Long Island Sound at the Ridgefield Library Thursday, May 31, 6:30 p.m.

Lucey will talk after the Norwalk River Watershed Association's annual meeting.

The talk will give background on the Soundkeeper Movement, how pollution impacts the Sound, and how the NRWA is monitoring water quality to track progress.

Lucey, a Wilton native who took over as Soundkeeper last year, is a fish and wildlife biologist, a former commercial fisherman, and an experienced advocate. Most recently, he served as project manager for the Kauai Invasive Species Committee at the Research Corporation University of Hawaii. After three decades of conservation work across North America, he decided the time was right to bring his expertise back to benefit Long Island Sound.

In addition to regular patrols, the Soundkeeper, now part of Save the Sound, acts an advocate, organizer, and resource. Register at Ridgefieldlibrary.org.
