April is a great month to drop by Hunt’s Mills. The Blue Herring have usually returned by this time and are pooling at Herring Rock on their way to the fish ladder. The Great Blue heron are also waiting for them! Last fall, the Nature Conservancy reconfigured that river area with huge pillows to open up troughs through the small falls. This is the time to see if their ideas worked. The John Hunt House is open again for tours with masking/ small group protocols now in place. There is a new school exhibit open and you gardeners will want to pick up seeds and planting boxes. Weather permitting, we will have games for children and families. And for you Rumford Bake-off enthusiasts, please visit the “The Great Rumford Bake-off” site on Facebook.
