Fishweir installation on Boston Common

This year is the 16th annual Fishweir installation on Boston Common during May and June.

On May 7, 2019, fishweir construction will be completed by students from two classes at Boston's Josiah Quincy Public School. The 150-foot-long fishweir is made with wood collected from Franklin Park, with help from the Boston Park Department.  The public educational project helps raise awareness of the early history of the people who made their home in this area more than 200 generations before the arrival of European colonists. 

The fishweir will remain on the Common through early June.
