You’ll also get a peak into the hard life of a lighthouse keeper and the surprisingly high financial risks taken by a Wethersfield trader in the 1790s. You’ll learn the story behind UConn Avery Point’s grand mansion campus, and about the ice industry in West Hartford.

Our cover story comes from Soundkeeper Bill Lucey: find out how he’s working to return Long Island Sound to a place where eagles, osprey, menhaden, and striped bass all thrive.
