Oh, the things you don‘t want to know about when you roll. Are you aware that our local streams, both big and small, are just infested with, yuk, gross, slimy eels? Seriously folks, these fascinating critters thrive in our waterways, and we are pleased this evening to have guest speaker, Matt Rinehimer, wildlife biologist with Maryland DNR, coming to educate us on them. Matt will make the slog from the far corners of Maryland‘s eastern shore for this occasion, so lets give him a crowd‘s welcome.
