Here’s the July 24 Earth Matters, by regular contributor John Sinton. This is the first article of a two-part series on the history of Atlantic salmon in the Connecticut River watershed. Part 2 will appear next Saturday, July 31.

John has provided informative notes to accompany the article, which appear only in the version that will be on the Hitchcock Center website, www.hitchcockcenter.org, early in the coming week. You’ll find the article on the home page. Scroll down to the end of the piece for a link to the notes.
