The Connecticut River Conservancy (CRC) is hosting three virtual Hydropower Coffee Hour events to discuss and answer questions about the five Connecticut River hydropower facilities that applied for renewed operating licenses in December. The five facilities include the Turners Falls Dam and Northfield Mountain Pumped Storage in Massachusetts, and the Wilder, Bellows Falls, and Vernon Dams in Vermont and New Hampshire. Once they are issued, the licenses for these facilities will be in place for the next 30-50 years and impact more than 175 miles of the Connecticut River. It’s critical that we all speak up NOW in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to influence these operating licenses. Join CRC at these Hydropower Coffee Hours to learn more:
- March 10, 9:30am, Traditional Cultural Properties
- April 15, 9:30am, River Critters
- May 12, 9:30am, River Recreation
Additional details and links to register can be found at www.ctriver.org/events. CRC staff and additional experts will be on hand to answer questions and share how the public can get involved in the hydro relicensing process to speak up for rivers. These events are devoted to question & answer. Each event has a unique topic to guide the conversation, but any questions related to the relicensing are welcome.
The three Hydropower Coffee Hour events are a follow-up to two informational presentations held by CRC in January that can be viewed online at www.ctriver.org/livestream or on CRC’s YouTube channel. We encourage attendees to view these presentations for additional background about the relicensing and related concerns.

Have you heard of Sheila and Neil, “the first non-flightless snails in the world?” How about a snoogle, kelpie, pegamallow, or preying beetis? Maybe you’re familiar with the candy corn creature that “helps foster kids find their forever home with his tiny little brain and his HUGE heart?”
Each of these wonderful, whimsical creatures—and many more—are on display now at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC)’s 2021 incarnation of GLASSTASTIC, a popular biennial collaboration between K-6 students and professional glass artists from throughout New England.

05/02/2021 - 08/22/2021 - 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm at Walpole Town Common
The Walpole Players have announced that last year’s popular Readings on the Common are returning! Beginning Sunday, May 2, at 4:00 PM, the Walpole Players will be holding their weekly meetings for Readings on the Common. These readings are not performances, rather simply reading through an assortment of scripts to choose one or more for another outdoor staged reading later in the summer.
The readings inspired by the need to only gather outdoors last summer and early fall led to a staged, costumed, and properly distanced reading of Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest” on the Common before an audience. This year’s readings will hopefully lead to one or more similar performances this year.
Anyone and everyone is invited to join us as a participant, as these readings are not meant to have an audience. This is a great way to discover your inner thespian! We will meet near the Bandstand on the Walpole Town Common. Please bring a lawn chair, water bottle, and a mask just in case one is needed.
Please email WalpolePlayers@gmail.com or call (603) 756-2535 if you need more information.

NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, have taken the art world by storm. In February 2021, collectors and speculators spent more than $200 million on NFT-based artwork, memes, and GIFs, and that was before digital artist Mike Winkelmann, known as Beeple, sold a piece for $69 million at famed auction house Christie’s on March 11 — the third highest price ever fetched by a living artist, after Jeff Koons and David Hockney. But what exactly are NFTs, why are they commanding such astronomical prices, and what effect are they having on the broader art world? Digital artist and scholar Anne Spalter will answer these questions and more in a Zoom presentation titled “An Introduction to NFT Art,” hosted by the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) on Wednesday, May 12, at 7 p.m. Admission is free; to register, visit brattleboromuseum.org.

By using the knowledge and wisdom of riverside communities, we might better prevent expensive and culturally ruinous troubles, safeguarding the magic of the Connecticut River.
Connecticut River Joint Commissions or “CRJC” preserves and protects the visual, ecological and agricultural resources of the Connecticut River Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont, as well as guides its growth and development. The five CRJC Local River Subcommittees, which include all 53 riverfront communities, comment on river related permits and watershed planning. Enabled by both states, volunteer commissioners and members act as the “eyes and ears” on river related issues. In addition, members advance public awareness and involvement on issues of local priority.
