Penobscot River Celebration – Monday, June 11, 2012.
While writing my paper for this past semester’s course on the necessity to restore Maine’s rivers, removing the damages that have been caused by logging and the resulting industries, I had the opportunity to research the Penobscot River Project. The next, and largest stage, of this river restoration is the removal of the Great Works Dam. I’m very excited to see that this has finally come to fruition. While I unfortunately won’t be able to attend the ceremonies, my thoughts will be on the river Monday when the dismantling begins.
