Southern Adirondack Society will host Lisa Holst at the Hadley-Luzerne Public Library, to present “Native Adirondack Fish and Piscivorous Birds”on Thursday, July 18th at 7:00 p.m.

Lisa will offer a brief history of the fish communities of the Adirondacks, including the history of degradation that shaped the Adirondack Park Preserve. The program will briefly touch on effects of acid rain and invasive species and Lisa will share profiles of some of the lesser known native Adirondack fish species. The program will wrap up by discussing the ongoing restoration of endangered Adirondack fish species, how the recovery of certain bird species is affecting fish and fisheries, and how piscivorous (fish-eating) birds are affected by environmental contamination.

Lisa Holst has worked for the Department of Environmental Conservation for 26 years in various planning and restoration roles. She has been the Rare Fish Unit leader since 2008, responsible for assessment, management, and restoration of imperiled species of freshwater fish statewide. Lisa attributes her avocation to spending summers on (and in) the St. Lawrence River and watching too much of The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau on TV as a child. She holds a BS in Marine Biology from Southampton College of Long Island University and resides in Niskayuna with her husband and daughter.
