A fast hard hitting 20 minute journey of the rivers troubles with the wildlife and people using it for recreation.
Have you ever wondered what lives in or flies along the Naugatuck River?
In silence they walk. With lightning speed they strike. Hidden from our view their beauty and behavior exists for almost no person to see. But there they are wild creatures in all shapes and sizes. If they have wings occasionally we catch a glimpse as they fly by. Other times they freeze at our sighting while we fish or kayak. Silent and still, they calculate our intentions to see if we are a threat. They rarely allow us to witness them being.
There is no shortage of nature documentaries that show us these hidden worlds. However, how many people in this Naugatuck River Valley have seen a documentary of wild life in the Naugatuck River?
Now there is such a film created by the NRRG.
Though it falls short of BBC or National Geographic quality, its images may surprise the curious or delight local nature lovers that cannot get to the river to see the abundance of wild creatures for themselves.
The film will start at 6:30 and Kevin Zak will be on hand to answer any questions or docents will be on hand to give you a tour of the Museum after the program.
