    Streams are important habitat for fish and other wildlife. 85% of wildlife species either live in or use aquatic habitats throughout the year to breed, travel, and find food and water.

    But in Maine, brook trout, Atlantic salmon, river otters and other wildlife get “stuck” at decaying, undersized stream culverts. One of the least visible elements of our build infrastructure, stream culverts allow roads to cross Maine’s vast network of streams. Surveys show that up to 90% of Maine culvert crossings make movement difficult or impossible for wildlife at least part of the year. When wildlife habitat is fragmented like this, it can result in population declines and the loss of species.

    Join Barbara Charry, biologist with Maine Audubon, to learn about Stream-Smart culvert designs and how we can connect fish and wildlife habitat while protecting roads and public safety.
