Saturday is awash in activities–local scientists will share their efforts to restore the herring population, even as herring ascend the fishway just behind the mill. Expect all kinds of herring related activities, an artisan’s marketplace, live music, and organic cornmeal dishes which, I know from experience, are worth swimming against the current for.
There will be a herring walk on Sunday (walking herring–who knew) along with other small-fry activities including an opportunity to contribute to a herring run mural and corn being prepared in ways you’ve only dreamed of. Kids find the corn-sifting to be magical, says Kim.
Kim Van Wormer and company continue their wonderful work at the Mill. If you’re local, stop by this weekend. If not, it’s worth the trip upstream. It only costs a few clams, you needn’t worry about being eaten by seagulls, and it’s a lotta fun for the entire kettle of fish.
