Fishway FULL

Holyoke has power! This episode, recorded in location, is an audio tour of the Robert E. Barrett Fishway, with Kate Sullivan, Director of Marketing and Communications for Holyoke Gas & Electric, and Elizabeth Austin, Coordinator of Public Programs at the Robert E Barrett Fishway.

We talked about the fishway, the fish migration, the importance of the Holyoke Dam and the Canal System, and we captured the sounds and energy of the river, on a tour of the facility, as an invitation to the public to visit and tour the Fishway on its current season, from Wednesday through Sunday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, May 2nd until June 10th, 2018. Also, it will be open on Memorial Day.
