Veazie_Dam_09_16_2013_(2)_cpdaigleVeazie Dam Update – Water levels continue to be high at the Veazie site (see photo), so further work removing the main section of the dam has been delayed (they did succeed in extending the coffer dam further out behind the dam last week). The Penobscot River Trust will be staffing a project display at MOFGA’s Common Ground Fair in the Environmental Concerns tent this weekend, stop by and say hello! They will also be present at the Old Town Riverfest on September 28, and Bradley Days on October 12.

Moose Money MOHF Lottery Tickets – Why are we mentioning lottery tickets?! Proceeds from the sale of this particular “Moose Money” lottery ticket go to wildlife and conservation! The Maine Outdoor Heritage Fund (MOHF) has been helping to fund critical conservation and wildlife projects throughout the state since it was created by the legislature in 1996 and is supported through proceeds from the dedicated Maine Outdoor Heritage Lottery Ticket.
