Apr – Celebrate Earth Day

A special 90-minute cruise in celebration of Earth Day;

Join us on a special cruise featuring former Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection fisheries biologist, Steve Gephard. For 46 years, Steve worked tirelessly to restore a viable population of Atlantic salmon in the Connecticut River. Now, he educates children in schools about the role fish play in the ecosystem and works with European governments to conserve salmon populations in the North Atlantic.

This cruise will be a deep dive into the fascinating world beneath the surface of the Connecticut River, with a focus on the fish that call it home and the role they play in the ecosystem. Steve’s extensive knowledge of the River and experience working with environmental organizations will make for an exciting and enriching experience on the water, and a prime opportunity to reflect on our relationship with the Earth.
