Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition offering Stewards' program
The Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition is again collaborating with the Maine Coastal Program to offer the Stewards' program to area residents. This is an unique opportunity to learn about the Penobscot Bay region and ways to conserve its resources. The program will run morning through afternoon from April 29 through May 29 (no class May 1). Topics to be covered include Penobscot Bay history, marine life, island ecology, land intertidal and marine habitats, fisheries and impacts to name a few. You will travel from the Penobscot nation to Hurricane Island; from Deer Isle to Damariscotta.
The course is free, but participants are expected to volunteer 30 hours to local conservation efforts of their choice during the coming year. Classes will provide an ample selection of possible projects.
The course is limited to 20 enthusiastic individuals who will participate in the entire program. If you would like more information, contact Maynard at 338-8666 or Karin at 322-5545. For an application form go to www.belfastbaywatershed.com
