The Natural History of Maui
Please join us Wednesday, July 20, 2022 at 7:00 PM the Rhode Island Sportsman's Association.
Richard Pierce will be presenting a program on the natural history of Maui based on his recent visit there and Lindsey Watt will be speaking on keeping the 'Opae 'ula, a tiny red shrimp found only in the Hawaiian islands and becoming increasingly popular as an aquarium subject.
'Opae 'ula shrimp are the shrimp used in the "Eco-spheres", sealed glass globes that are supposed to be a completely self-contained ecosystem. Lindsey carries a line of nano-aquaria called Luau Lagoons which allow the permanent maintenance of these unique shrimp, which can live for 20 years if properly maintained.

We will also have a small auction of fish or plants you are submitted for the BAP or HAP. Members may also bring up to 3 lots for a Buck-a-Bag auction. We also plan to have refreshments, a raffle and a short business meeting. All are welcome and membership is not required to participate.
The Rhode Island Sportsmans Association is located at 19 Mohawk Drive, Riverside, Rhode Island.
