Part of the Spring Talk series. Sponsored by Camden National Bank.
The history and importance of Maine’s rivers are as long as the mighty rivers themselves. In addition to being major ecosystems and habitat for wildlife and fish, people have had a long reliance on these waterways.
River restoration advocate Landis Hudson will speak about the relationship between rivers and the Gulf of Maine, how Maine is protecting river health and ecosystems, how human uses for the rivers have changed over time, and how dam removals are shaping the future of river restoration efforts in Maine.
Hudson is the executive director of Maine Rivers, a statewide advocacy organization with a mission to protect, restore and enhance the ecological health of Maine¹s river systems. Since 2008 Landis has been involved in efforts to improve the health of many rivers in Maine, including the Kennebec, Sebasticook, St.Croix, Royal, Mousam and Presumpscot.
