Free Fish Printing for All Ages
This fun free activity combines science and art through the traditional Japanese practice of Gyotaku, or fish printing. Discover the intricate beauty and important function of fish fins and scales. Learn about resident fish as well as migratory fish that return to the Connecticut River to lay their eggs. Drop in anytime between noon and 2:00 p.m. at the Turners Falls Fishway to create your work of art on paper using scientifically accurate replicas of Connecticut River fish. This event is part of the Annual Family Fish Day at the Great Falls Discovery Center. Families can bring along a picnic and enjoy our beautiful riverside picnic area adjacent to the Fishway. If raining, the event will take place at the Great Falls Discovery Center.
