Help Fish Spawn in Greenwich

The number of fish that swim upstream to spawn in Long Island Sound's watershed is ridiculously low. Every stream -- literally -- used to have a spring run, but dams have blocked them off. To compensate (we're always trying to compensate for our environmental mistakes; we never seem to recognize them ahead of time and avoid them), a number of towns have worked with the Connecticut DEP to build fish ladders and passageways.

One of the best and most active is on the Mianus River, in Greenwich. If I lived near closer, I'd volunteer to do this.
