Introduction: 4:00 - 4:30 p.m. at the Winthrop Town Office, 17 Highland Ave.

Field site visit: 4:45 – 6:00 p.m. ~ Case Road in East Winthrop.

Culverts are major conduits for rivers, streams, and fish. Participants will get an up close look at culverts: some good, others bad and ugly. The focus of the trip will be on looking at culverts from a fish passage and flood preparedness perspective. 

Jeremy Bell, stream restoration specialist at The Nature Conservancy, will explain what makes a good road crossing that will keep both roads and streams functioning in all weather conditions.
