Hoosic River Watershed Association RiverFest!

Event date/time: 
Saturday, May 11, 2019 (All day)
Williamstown, MA

Participants will learn about river processes (fluvial geomorphology). Understanding why rivers do what they do is essential to managing flood risk in riverine environments, particularly at road-stream crossings such as culverts and bridges. We will use an interactive stream table and allow participants to experiment with various river and landscape scenarios to illustrate first-hand how rivers change their shape, erode banks, flood low-elevation areas, and impact infrastructure.
