CELEBRATE SPRING WITH PLYMOUTH’S 2019 HERRING RUN!
THE TOWN OF PLYMOUTH, NOAA, AND THE PLIMOTH GIRST MILL present the 2019 Herring Run on April 27 from 10:00 -3:00!
Plymouth students and their families are invited to join in the celebration of the spring herring run at Brewster Gardens and Town Brook!
During this fun-filled day you can watch the herring swim, and help scientists collect information about their progress. Explore all things fishy – learn about eels, watch a Wampanoag fishing and cooking demonstration, meet a Pilgrim herring warden, and talk about fish with the incredible Herring Lady! There will be guided walks of the Town Brook, demonstrations and information about the local ecology and open spaces of Plymouth, and environmental activities for kids of all ages. All activities are free.
Help kick off the event at 10:00am by joining the “fish” parade which follows the herring as they swim up Town Brook to lay their eggs. The parade starts at the Brewster Garden foot bridge and ends in Jenney Pond Park, at 6 Spring Lane. Creative fish hats, masks or other costumes encouraged!
The Plimoth Grist Mill will be open from 9-5 with samples, activities and corn milling.

Please help our Project 351 students!
We are extremely proud of the students from our secondary schools who are ambassadors for Project 351. Please take a moment to listen as Julianne (PNHS), Grace (PSMS), Brooke (PNHS), Emma (PCIS), and Sonia (PSHS) share how YOU can help support Cradles to Crayons.
These students are collecting any new or gently used clothing and shoes for children in need in Massachusetts until April 5th. Please consider taking some time over the weekend to gather items for donation. THANK YOU! Collection locations are listed at the end of the video.
