SUMMARY:Massachusetts: Canoeing 180 miles for Salmon, and The Penobscot River Restoration Trust! - Slideshow & Potluck
DESCRIPTION:The Problem: The Penobscot River Restoration Trust needed $60 million to buy and remove some dams\, improve some fish passages and basically restore about 1\,000 river miles of endangered Atlantic Salmon breeding habitat. A Solution: Join our speaker\, Matt Hopkinson\, to learn more about how he started his own fundraiser with the goal of raising $5\,000 for the trust. Starting the Veazie Dam location\, which was recently removed\, he headed upstream in his canoe as far north as a fish could do once the project is complete. That put Matt 180 miles up the Penobscot and Mattwamkeag Rivers to a dam on Rockabema Lake. Join Gossamer Gear Trail Ambassador and AMC Leader Julie LePage for the slideshow to hear more about Matt's adventure and the goals for the Penobscot River Restoration Trust.
