Togus Stream conservation….interested??

Togus Stream runs along the Pittston/Randolph town line and runs east into Chelsea and Pittston.  The Chelsea Conservation Commission has formed a small committee with an interest in the conservation of this Stream.  They are looking for any interested persons from Randolph and Pittston to join them in their efforts. 

The Stream is home to alewives, trout, and Atlantic salmon. Bald Eagles and Osprey are frequent visitors to this resource.  It also can be a challenging white water canoe run at very high water in the spring. It also has a number of large freshwater wetlands which are prime waterfowl habitat.

If you are interested in helping to conserve the resources of Togus stream, please contact Alec Giffen in Chelsea at 207/215-1947 or alecgiffen@gmail.com
