“River Cycle: The Concord in Lowell” premieres Tuesday, April 20!

Join us for the special Lowell film premiere!



Tuesday, April 20 | 6-8PM
Boott Cotton Mills Museum Events Center
115 John Street, Lowell
Free & open to the public!

A lush garden cemetery. A dam built for the Middlesex Manufacturing Company. A gothic Catholic church. A lone smokestack. In addition to various natural features, these are among the many relics of the past visible along the Concord River as it flows through Lowell. But the history and ecology of the waterway and its banks have been long neglected — now Lowell’s “other river” has been rediscovered.

Come meet UMass Lowell professor and director Chad Montrie plus representatives from Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust, Lowell National Historical Park, and the Tsongas Industrial History Center and explore Lowell’s past and present. Learn about the Concord’s key role in the stories we tell about industry, community, and nature. This special premiere event will also include a public unveiling of other resources designed to turn the finished Greenway Park into an outdoor classroom!

For more information, visit UMass Lowell e-News or contact Chad Montrie at 978-934-4275.
