Mystic River Herring Run & Paddle

I’m so excited to share my design for the Mystic River Herring Run and Paddle – Sunday May 19th, 9 AM!

If you want to join the run or paddle, sign up by May 15! Details at Race Roster:

You can enter a 5K run/walk race and any of three different paddling races (3, 9, and 12 miles).

All events are held at the Department of Conservation and Recreation Blessing of the Bay Boathouse in Somerville. That’s where t-shirts and posters with my design will be for sale to help fund Mystic River Watershed Association’s efforts to revitalize waterfront parks and paths, improve water quality and climate resilience within the watershed, and promote ecological stewardship. Pretty cool, yes?

And thank you, Mystic River Watershed Association for this opportunity to make art celebrating one of my favorite spring events: the spring herring migration! Visit to explore how you can get involved!
