River Day 

12-4:30 p.m., Regents Commons, Shaw Center

Come celebrate our river! River Day is a festival of art, architecture, policy, and science projects featuring the Park (Hog) River, the environment around it, and the status of water as a resource in our state. Enjoy meeting live birds of prey, drinking sweet tree juice, and eating power bars made from bugs. See the 20’ x 30’ map of the campus and the North Branch of the river by artist Mary Miss. Write a message to a public official and take away a beautiful woodcut postcard of an invasive species.

 12:15-1:15 p.m.  Birds of Prey from Sharon, Audubon Society

 2-3 p.m.              Discussion of Mary Miss’ map of the North Branch of the Park River

 3-4 p.m.              River Walk led by Mary Pelletier, head of Park Watershed.

River Day is sponsored by River Ambassadors, a partnership between the University of Hartford and Park Watershed, the stewardship organization for the Park River.
