“There’s more to this than just fisheries restoration. That’s the tip of the iceberg. It’s a social gain, an economic gain, ecologically, educational … I can’t do it alone, you can’t do it alone, MCHT can’t, but if we can get more people and more groups, that’s a bigger voice and it’s amazing what we can get done.” – Bailey Bowden, head of the Penobscot Alewife Committee
In 2021, through a collaboration with Bailey and many other partners, we completed the last of five fishway projects, resulting in the Bagaduce River Watershed becoming the first fully restored watershed for fish passage in Maine.
What do rivers have to do with land protection? Watch our short film about Bailey and see how the MCHT Rivers Initiative impacts the ecosystems and people who are so tied to them.
