In June 2018, the Town of Penobscot installed five new interpretive panels at Pierce's Pond. A new nature-like fishway provides passage for alewives and other sea-run fish, along with viewing platforms and a picnic area at the public boat launch. The Town and alewife steward Bailey Bowden, along with local partners at Maine Coast Heritage Trust, Blue Hill Heritage Trust, and Maine Center for Coastal Fisheries, are leading the effort to restore migratory fish to the entire Bagaduce watershed. The Pierce's Pond project was funded by NOAA Fisheries and The Nature Conservancy with Habitat Blueprint funding, with additional support from Maine Sea Grant and Maine Outdoor Heritage Fund.
