Topics Coming Up:

February 19th – River Herring:

We’ll be joined by Abigail Archer (Fisheries and Aquaculture Specialist, Woods Hole Sea Grant/Cape Cod Cooperative Extension Marine Program) and Betsy Gladfelter (Conservation Commissioner, Town of Falmouth). Abigail will discuss the life cycle and population status of river herring and the history of fish ladders on Cape Cod. Betsy will talk about the restoration of the Coonamessett River in Falmouth and the restoration’s impact on river herring habitat and fish passage.

April 29th – Green Landscaping for Cape Cod

Jack Ahern, Professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and this talk is Designing with Nature on Cape Cod and the Islands. His talk will explain how to preserve the special environmental and visual character of the Cape and Islands through an “ecologically-based” approach to landscape design. This approach starts with an understanding of the Cape and Islands’ native plants and plant communities, which are well-adapted to local soils and growing conditions. Ahern will discuss how these plant communities can be designed for landscapes where people live, learn, work, and play. His approach will be illustrated with examples of landscapes on the Cape and Islands that have applied this approach. The talk is a preview of Ahern’s upcoming book “Designing with Nature on Cape Cod and the Islands”.
