About The Event:
Help wildlife, help the environment, help scientists and know more about cute river herring. Every year, river herring swim from the harbor up rivers to lay eggs in fresh water. This amazing wildlife story is largely invisible. Join us and discover the remarkable ecological success story of river herring on the Mystic River. Find out about river herring lifecycle, the Mystic River, and hear from scientists studying the fish. YOU can be involved in gathering data through our web-based community science project. We’ll show you how!

About the
Festival

Cambridge Science Festival, the first of its kind in the United States, is a madcap celebration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). A multifaceted, multicultural event, the Festival makes science accessible, interactive, and fun, highlighting the impact of STEAM in all our lives.

For the 2021 Festival, we will host a month-long celebration of STEAM in our community with an overarching theme of gratitude and appreciation. During the month of April 2021, we will showcase creative digital and virtual entries from our rich STEAM community.
