Our Water: Upstream & Downstream
Sponsored by the Groton Public Library & Avalonia Land Conservancy
The Groton Public Library and Avalonia Land Conservancy will present a series of programs about our local brooks, rivers, and Long Island Sound at the Library during April. As WE ALL LIVE DOWNSTREAM, plan to join us to learn more about the quality of our water and how it impacts both marine animals and us! Join us Tuesday April 16 at 7pm at the Library for the second program:
Inland Water Quality: How It Affects Shellfish & Marine Habitats
Tessa Getchis, an aquaculture extension specialist at the Connecticut Sea Grant program at UConn Avery Point, will present a historical account of shellfisheries and marine aquaculture and how inland water quality affects our marine habitats, and in particular, our shellfish resources. She will focus on how these resources contribute to the ecology, culture, recreation, food and commerce in southeastern Connecticut.
Free, no registration required. For more information call the Library at 860 441 6750.
