Hard work, real fun, true impact: the annual fall trash cleanup of the Connecticut River and its tributaries. Join DCR and library staff in the morning to clean-up along the Turners Falls canal.

How has Turners Falls’ location--along a bend of the Connecticut River--impacted its history? What is the Indigenous heritage of this community? Which industries thrived along the Turners Falls Canal? Who worked in the Canal’s factories? What were their lives like? How does the Canal affect local wildlife? What is the future of the Canal District? How will new development impact the community?

This fall, in collaboration with the Great Falls Discovery Center, the Town of Montague, RiverCulture, and a group of esteemed local historians, the Montague Public Libraries will seek to answer these questions and more, exploring the history and ecology of this area in a program series titled The Turners Falls Canal District: Rediscovering the Past, Planning for the Future.
