'Effects of Dams on the Environment'
Glastonbury - posted Feb, 10 2014
GLASTONBURY - Effects of Dams on the Environment will be held on Saturday, Feb. 22, 10 a.m. to noon, at the Connecticut Audubon Society/Glastonbury, 1361 Main St., Glastonbury. Dams are something that shouldn’t be taken for granted. Some of the worst polluted soil can be found behind even a small dam. Professional engineer Laura Wildman will give a presentation on the impact of dams, past and present. A leading expert on fish passage and barrier removal in the U.S., Wildman has been involved in numerous relevant projects. Looking at dams in Connecticut and New England, Wildman will present a whole new look at how lives are affected by the building and removal of dams. Not only do dams impact communities but they also play a key role in the health of wildlife and environment. This program is free for members; $10 for nonmembers; students half-price with ID. Proceeds from this event benefit the educational programs of the CT Audubon Center at Glastonbury.
