You Are Invited To The Farmington Land Trust First Program of 2015!
“It All Happened on the Farmington River: A Story of Historic Sites, Fish, Factories, Floods & Flows”Presented by Dr. Eileen Fielding, Executive Director of the FRWA
FLT Board member Dr. Charlie Leach will open the program with a brief discussion of the role of the Farmington River in the creation of the Farmington Land Trust.
