  • The Sawmill 32 Mill Road Acushnet, MA, 02743 United States (map)

About: Enjoy food, festivities and outdoor fun during the Buzzards Bay Coalition’s second Acushnet River Herring Festival. The festival celebrates the restoration of The Sawmill, a public park. Since a dam was lowered at The Sawmill in 2007, populations of river herring, a small fish that provides an important link in Buzzards Bay’s food web, have increased tenfold in the Acushnet River.
