Join us to celebrate the newly finished dam removal at the Coopers Mills Dam site. The Coopers Mills project opened up 26 miles of river, established 3 fire hydrants, improved public access and preserved the site’s mill history. The project at Coopers Mills is just the beginning of our work to reconnect the Sheepscot.

Project partners will gather to offer brief remarks.  Parking is limited along Main Street and at the volunteer fire department.
