Endangered Species Day at the Maine Forest and Logging Museum
Learn about endangered fish at the museum!
To celebrate Endangered Species Day, staff from NOAA Fisheries will be on the banks of Blackman’s Stream, a recent restoration site where a nature-like fishway was constructed to help pass alewives up stream to access the ponds they breed in. Staff will be on hand to discuss the importance of reconnecting habitat for sea-run fish such as Atlantic salmon and alewives, and will teach the children about the spring run of alewives that are abundant in the stream. Admission is free and open to the public.
