The Mousam River at a Turning Point

3/18, Tuesday 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Wells Reserve at Laudholm

View of the Mousam RiverRivers are being restored across the country, bringing back large native fish runs, eagles and osprey, and a variety of other birds and wildlife.  In Maine, the Kennebec River has seen dramatic positive changes, and the Penobscot is poised to experience the same.  Can this happen in York County as well?

The Mousam River is the largest remaining river system in Maine completely lacking in fish passage.  John Burrows, on behalf of the Mousam and Kennebunk Rivers Alliance, Maine Rivers and the Atlantic Salmon Federation, will present an overview of our local dams and rivers, the impacts we’ve had on our ecosystems, and what changes might be possible.

About Harlequin

Harlequin is a pseudonym for content not attributed to a specific author. It echoes the name of the YCAS newsletter, The Harlequin. Watch for Harlequin Ducks along the rocky portions of the York County coast in winter. ¶ The avatar is by Louis Agassiz Fuertes, who sketched and painted the species during the Harriman Alaska Expedition. ¶ "When we got before the glacier, I saw my first pair of harlequins... the glass showed them plainly to be a ♂ + ♀ histrionicus." — L.A. Fuertes, June 7, 1899
