A goal of this project is to bring the herring migration into schools throughout the 21 communities in the Mystic River watershed and beyond! We are currently scheduling classroom visits and hands-on field trips for students and teachers. If you would like to get your school involved please contact us at (781)316-3438 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Learn more about our education program here.
