The Claremont Conservation Commission has sponsored a series of programs in 2021. The final 2 programs of 8 programs are titled:
River Restoration and Resilience: The City of Claremont, like many New England towns, is shaped by the health and ways of rivers. For Claremont, the Connecticut and Sugar Rivers are the largest, however every stream and drainage area is significant. How water moves and what it carries effects the quality of our water, maintaining of recreational activities, impacts of heavy rain, the health of our aquatic ecosystems, and much more.
In this series on Climate Change and Wildlife we are going to learn more about what impacts the health and adaptability of our water systems, and what is or can be done at both the city and household scale to improve its functioning.
