Learn about the fascinating lives and epic migrations of American Shad and Sea Lamprey virtually with Firstlight’s Northfield Mountain on Tuesday, May 18th from 5:30 until 6:30 p.m. These fish play an important role in our river ecosystems as they migrate to and from the sea.
Author John McPhee nicknamed American Shad “Our Founding Fish”. Sea Lamprey have been called “Hero of our rivers and vampire of the sea”. Find out why this keystone species is misunderstood and underappreciated. Join Kim Noyes, Firstlight’s Northfield Mountain Education Coordinator, for this free presentation on the history and natural history of these unusual fish as this spring’s upriver migration is underway.
