Meet Your Neighbors: Karl Meyer - Living Rivers Flow Downstream, Thursday, October 21, 7 pm

Join local activist and journalist Karl Meyer for Living Rivers Flow Downstream”: a 50-year unnatural history of the Connecticut River in Massachusetts, and his 25 years of writing about it.

Karl Meyer fell in love with the Connecticut River long ago. Giving voice to the key truths of the Connecticut River in varied formats and publications has been his main pursuit for the last 25 years. Karl will talk about the half-century-long history and give the lowdown of how New England’s Great River has been ripped apart by diversions and brutal industrial practices—and why federal and state bureaucracies failed to enforce landmark environmental laws.

Meyer’s views have been informed by past work at the Massachusetts Audubon Society, Northeast Utilities and the Connecticut River Watershed Council--as well as 9 years, and counting, as an intervener and citizen stakeholder in the federal relicensing of the Northfield Mountain and Turners Falls/Cabot stations on the Connecticut River.
