Of Sewers and Shad: The Future of the Connecticut River

Thursday October 15, 2020 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

In an accessible and engaging presentation Dr. Fisk will tell the story of our sucesses and significant remaining challenges to protect and restore the Connecticut River and its many tributaries. While there is much to be admired in the work done over the last decades, a changed climate, increasing development, and not least a shortage of ecological and historical imagination all hinder what is possible toward a river that is clean, healthy, and full of life.


Andrew Fisk,Ph.D. has been the Executive Director of the Connecticut River Conservancy since 2011. He has lead the significant recent growth of the organization in its work to protect and restore New England’s Great River and its entire watershed from the Canadian border to Long Island Sound. The Connecticut River Conservancy is one of the country’s oldest watershed organizations, founded in 1952. Prior to this job, Fisk served in a variety of positions in Maine state government advancing environmental and natural resource protections.
