Michael Tougias speaks on the Quabbin

Please join us for this excellent narrated slide presentation about Quabbin Reservoir. The program features the demise of the lost towns flooded to create the Quabbin, the construction of the massive reservoir and how the Quabbin works today. Tougias' slides include before and after images of the lost towns, workers building the dams and aqueduct, the grand opening of the reservoir, wildlife of the Quabbin, unique natural places, and favorite trails and entrance gates. The author will have copies of his books available.
