Celebrate East Lyme Day!
Each July, the Niantic River Watershed Committee attends Celebrate East Lyme Day. Committee members set up informational displays about the ecology of the Niantic River. Exhibits include touch tanks with animals commonly found in the Niantic River and Bay, courtesy of the Millstone Environmental Lab. The Committee also sets up a display about challenges faced by the Niantic River, identifying water quality issues, promotes projects underway in the watershed to improve water quality, and provides simple actions residents can adopt to reduce impacts to the river.
