Restoration of the Pawcatuck River – A Fishy Perspective
August 6, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Join us at the Westerly Public Library for a free lecture on the “Restoration of the Pawcatuck River – A Fishy Perspective.”
Chris Fox, the executive director of the Wood Pawcatuck Watershed Association (WPWA) and the project manager of the historic Pawcatuck River Fish Passage projects, will take participants on a virtual tour of recent/upcoming improvements to the Pawcatuck River. The audience will learn how the recent dam removals and fish ladders are making it possible for fish to travel upstream to Worden Pond, which hasn’t happened in over 200 years. Fox will also discuss how what is good for the fish tends to be good for people who recreate on the river.
The Wood-Pawcatuck Watershed Association (WPWA) is a nonprofit organization with a mission to promote and protect the integrity of the lands and waters of the Pawcatuck Watershed. WPWA works with local, state, and federal agencies on public policy formulation and debate within the watershed.
