What? Watch the river for just 10 minutes to count river herring swimming upstream to spawn. With 2 dams removed from the river early last year, native river herring are once again able to return from the Atlantic Ocean to spawn. As a result of the monitoring efforts of last year's 200+ volunteers, the Mass. Division of Marine Fisheries estimates that more than 1,500 river herring spawned in the newly opened section of the river.
How? First, sign up for one or more time slots (http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090448abae29abf58-shawsheen). There are 3 morning slots (7-11 am), 3 midday slots (11-3 pm), and 3 after school/work slots (3-7 pm) for every day of the spawning run. Show up any time during the period you sign up for and watch the river for just 10 minutes. The more counts we get, the better the estimate of the spawning run size will be.

Come vote for your favorite student designed artwork! The designs with the most votes will be used to create the Main Street Wall Murals. This is your chance to influence the look of Andover's largest mural. Can't make it to the event? No problem. Like your favorites on our Facebook page @thewallmurals. Artwork will be posted the last week of April.
About the Murals project: This project is a community initiative to connect Downtown Main Street and the Historic Mill District by using hanging mural panels. “The Wall” refers to the large retaining wall located across from the Andover Safety Center. The final mural will be painted on segmented panels, and then hung on the wall rather than painted directly onto the wall. Student artists will be creating designs based on community feedback gathered at a public charrette held on January 31st at Memorial Hall Library.
