Rivers 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.
