We will meet behind Hanover Crossing to view the recently reconnected Third Herring Brook and hear more about the Third Herring Brook Restoration project. The Third Herring Brook is a 5 mile tributary to the North River that forms the town border between Norwell and Hanover. Between 2014 and 2022, NSRWA removed the first three dams along the brook – Mill Pond Dam (October 2014), Tack Factory Dam (late 2016/early 2017) and Peterson Pond Dam (November 2020) – and two concrete weirs.

This project opened 5 miles of mainstem and 9.7 miles with tributaries and has led to the return of Eastern Native Brook Trout using the mainstem. In addition, our river herring count volunteers have observed increasing numbers of river herring passing the former site of the Tack Factory dam, as they expand their range further upstream!

From there, we will move indoors to join local artists in painting a large mural depicting the North River. This is a unique experience to see how the process of large scale painting unfolds and to be a part of a collaborative art installation that will be unveiled this summer.
