ROCKLAND — “Fishers are King” is the third chapter in a trilogy of wildlife appreciation presentations by the Maine Coast Heritage Trust. Following the pace set by the “Owls are Easy” talk and its sequel “Otters are Easier,” “Fishers are King” will dive headfirst into what makes everyone’s favorite/least Mustelid (weasel family) fishers. Personal stories, photos, and videos will make this a Thursday night full of education and appreciation as we explore the concept of Fishers in Midcoast Maine. Tracking tips and advice will be shared, as well as reviews (often uncensored) of helpful tools.
