Mianus River Fishway open house rescheduled

Due to predicted cold and inclement weather, the open house hosted by the Greenwich Conservation Commission for the Mianus River Fishway scheduled for Saturday, April 9 has been canceled and rescheduled for Saturday, April 23, from 10 a.m. to noon. A second open house is also scheduled for Saturday, May 21, from 2 to 4 p.m.  Access to the fishway is provided on site off of the parking lot at The River House, 125 River Road Extension, Cos Cob.

The fishway, which was constructed in 1993, allows diadromous fishes such as alewives and blueback herring (collectively referred to as river herring) to gain access to important spawning and nursery habitat in the Mianus River. During the open house, participants will be given a tour of the fishway and learn about its history, the natural history of the fish that utilize it, and how it is operated.

No prior knowledge of fish migration and passage is needed to attend.  Local residents, fishing groups, environmental organizations, watershed associations, and town employees are encouraged to attend.
