Stops will include:

  • The heart of the watershed, where communities depend on the river for drinking water: Mast Point Dam, Somersworth, NH and Berwick, ME (learn about the Berwick Downtown Vision Committee’s work and the story of the old Prime Tanning location recently awarded an EPA Brownfields grant).
