  • Stream Smart Public Presentation
    • Tuesday Mar 28, 2017 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
    • Location: East Millinocket Town Hall
    • Free

    Interested in protecting wildlife and improving public safety along the roadways and waterways of your town?  An upcoming presentation in East Millinocket will introduce local residents to Stream Smart, a set of innovative techniques used to replace outdated road-stream crossings with new construction that’s beneficial both to wildlife and human needs.  Rapid snowmelt and severe rainstorms can affect both public safety and wildlife protection along Maine’s roadways, and Stream Smart addresses these common problems. Stream Smart crossings also re-connect stream habitats, opening up passage for aquatic and watershed wildlife, including salmon.  An interactive model stream table will show how stream habitats function and how they interact with road crossings.

    Learn how you can become involved in promoting Stream Smart practices and projects within your local communities.  This is a great educational opportunity for town residents, town administrators and staff, private landowners, foresters, anglers, and members of road and lake associations, land trusts, and watershed groups.  Join us for this interactive presentation!

    To Register, please call Penobscot County Soil and Water Conservation District at (207) 947-6622 ext. 3 or email Amy Polyot at [email protected]
