Penobscot Watershed Conference: Sharing our Heritage, Challenges, and Future

On Saturday, April 9, 2016, at Point Lookout in Northport, Maine, the Penobscot Watershed Conference brought together more than 300 scientists, researchers, business leaders, nonprofit organizations, fishermen, government representatives, and others to discuss the state of the watershed past, present, and future: what needs to happen, what individuals might do, and recommendations for action. Thanks to the many sponsors who helped make the conference happen.
