New Herring Education Project Announced

MyRWA is excited to share that we will be working with local schools to connect students to the river herring migration through a new program. Funded by a US EPA Environmental Education grant we will design and install a video system and web interface that enables students to monitor a major fish migration and participate in fish counts. Two underwater video cameras will be installed – one at the Upper Mystic Lake Dam in Medford and the second at the fish ladder in Winchester Center which is now under construction. MyRWA will work with teachers in local K-12 schools to develop curriculum around herring, environmental science and the Mystic River that will be housed on the new webpage. Students will also take field trips to the dams to witness the migration first hand.  MyRWA is excited to share this rite of spring to a larger audience, further connect people to the river, and also gain a deeper understanding of the Mystic River herring migration. For more information about this new initiative please contact Beth.
