The Wonders of the Natural World: The Art of Courtney Mattison in Context
August 11, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$10.00 – $12.00
Courtney Mattison inspires the effort to understand how the interconnectedness of waterways and actions that begin in our local streams and rivers ultimately influence the millions of species that inhabit coral reefs. Although Long Island Sound and the Connecticut River estuary region is not known for its coral reefs, reefs none the less exist elsewhere and host unique species. The watershed for Long Island Sound extends all the way into Quebec, Canada, and includes the entire state of Connecticut. What we do in our backyards and communities makes it to the Sound via an enormous network of wetlands and watercourses. We will make the connection between people, local waters, and the health of marine ecosystems, and learn about our very own “Hope Spot” proposed within the estuary region.
Featuring Judy Preston, Local Naturalist.
