Head to the Mystic Lakes dam in Medford on Saturday, May 20th from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. to hear from volunteers about the river herring migration. You'll also get to see racers from the Mystic River Herring Run & Paddle!
The return of the herring is a sure sign of spring for Mystic River communities, and the Mystic River Watershed Association is happy to offer the public an opportunity to view this annual migration. Join us for an open house at the DCR Upper Mystic Lake Dam on Mystic Valley Parkway in Medford to learn more about the Blueback and Alewife Herring. If you would like to coordinate a group visit, please contact the Association at 781-316-3438.
