Green Drinks: Stream Debris – A Delicate Dance for Ecosystem Health

November 16, 2023 @ 5:30 pm 6:30 pm

Join us for a presentation and discussion about stream debris with Marie Caduto of the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources and Courtney Buckley of the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department! We’ll learn when to remove it, when to leave it be, and when it would be best to add more to keep our stream ecosystems healthy and thriving.

Marie Levesque Caduto is the Watershed Planner for southeastern VT with the Dept. of Environmental Conservation. Marie has worked for DEC for 18 years and has 40 years of experience in the environmental field. Marie writes watershed plans that summarize water quality and habitat conditions in a watershed (including the Ottauquechee River), identifies and prioritizes on-the-ground projects and actions needed to protect or restore water resources and identifies appropriate funding sources to complete the work with partnering organizations. Marie spends her free time paddling, hiking and gardening and maintaining a 230 year-old home.

Courtney Buckley is a Fisheries Biologist with the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department who works closely with other biologists, agencies, and the public to protect and conserve fish and their habitats throughout southern Vermont. She received a BS in Environmental Science from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry and a MS in Marine Conservation and Resource Management from the University of South Alabama and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab. Before calling Vermont home, Courtney grew up on Long Island and spent her early career working with a variety of fish and wildlife species across the eastern US.
