The Connecticut River Watershed Council and Art for Water are creating a “river of words” to draw attention to the federal relicensing of five major hydroelectric facilities from Turners Falls, MA to north of Hanover, NH. This public participation, community art project will tell a thousand stories to improve the ecological health and recreational opportunities of the Connecticut River. Come add your voice at: Great Falls Discovery Center, 2 Avenue A, Turners Falls, MA on Saturday, March 5 at 1 PM.
“We are working together to bring a public opinion art installation to the State and Federal government,” says Andrew Fisk, Executive Director of the Connecticut River Watershed Council. The government is in the process of making decisions about how these dams will operate over the next 30-40 years. “You have a unique opportunity to influence how 200 miles of the Connecticut River and its tributaries from Montague, MA to north of Hanover, NH will be managed, restored and improved”— for all who live here.
You will want to engage in this interactive art project at the Great Falls Discovery Center on Saturday, March 5 at 1PM. “We are building an inspiring and influential art exhibit that is made up of your stories and aspirations for our rivers. It’s called the Power of Water, The Power of Words because our voices do have the power to influence positive change.” Come and add your voice.
