Join the Wildlands Trust for The Art and Science of Dam Removals, a public talk by Andrew Greene!

When you take out a dam – how do you know what the river should look like?  What techniques do engineers use to restore rivers? What has been learned about river restoration in the Northeast? What challenges were encountered in Plymouth and nearby river restorations and how has the restoration community learned from them? Learn the answers to these questions and more with Andrew Greene, Professional Engineer and Manager of Water Resource Engineering at Milone & MacBroom at part 6 of this 7-part lecture series.

The World Migratory Fish Day Lecture Series is brought to you by the Town of Plymouth Department of Marine and Environmental Affairs in partnership with Wildlands Trust and Woods Hole Sea Grant. The Town of Plymouth will be celebrating its 400th anniversary in 2020 and stream restoration will be a highlight of the celebrations.  In recognition of years of effort, the Town of Plymouth was designated the North American Headquarters for World Fish Migration Day 2020.

No registration is necessary. Seating is first-come, first-serve.
