Join the Buzzards Bay Coalition and the New Bedford Whaling Museum for a series of three evening lectures about the work being done to restore and maintain the Buzzards Bay watershed.
Restoring Rivers—Hello Fish!
Sara N. da Silva Quintal, Restoration Ecologist, Buzzards Bay Coalition
Hopes are high for restoring the health of migrating fish populations in the Weweantic River thanks to a recently announced Buzzards Bay Coalition effort to remove the crumbling remnants of Horseshoe Dam. Da Silva Quintal will discuss this project and provide updates on the Acushnet River restoration project.
David Gould, Director, Town of Plymouth Dept. of Marine & Environmental Affairs
Gould will explain how restoration efforts at Town Brook are revitalizing this historic waterway, which was once a source of fresh water and food for the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag people.
This event begins with a reception at 6pm, followed by lectures beginning at 6:30pm.
Fees: $5 for New Bedford Whaling Museum or Buzzards Bay Coalition members; $10 for non-members
