More Wind TurbinesJoin us for a community presentation and discussion about Maine Audubon’s latest scientific report that assesses where wind power development can be sited in Maine that avoids or minimizes impact on critical wildlife resources. Staff wildlife biologist, Susan Gallo, will present key findings from the report and assess the feasibility of Maine’s goal of generating 3,000 MW capacity of wind power by 2030 with minimal impact to wildlife.

Susan will be joined by Dave Publicover, Senior Staff Scientist at the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC), who will discuss AMC’s assessment of conservation priorities in high elevation areas in the northeast (from the Catskills to Baxter State Park) and how this information can help direct future wind power development away from ecologically significant areas.

Q&A to follow presentation.

Join us for refreshments at 5:30 pm.Eagle

Free and open to the public.

Maine Audubon’s ‘Wind & Wildlife in Maine’ summary report is available on our website.
