Cape Cod hosts several dozen river herring runs. Two species of herring swim
up the runs in April and May to spawn, then return to the ocean. Scientists
believe they’ve been migrating up streams along the Atlantic since long before
Cape Cod was scraped up by Ice Age glaciers.
The Centerville River is one of the Cape’s runs, and its robust migration has
been one of the largest on the Cape in recent years. Steve Waller and Jane
Ward live along the run, and organize the spring count. They will show slides,
photos, and videos of the migration and the counting process.
Please come with your questions about this amazing annual event. Saturday May 11th at 1pm at The Osterville Village Library. For more information or to register for this event please contact Amy Wolfe at awolfe@clamsnet.org or by calling the OVL directly at (508)420-0550
