Friends of the Harriet L. Hartley Conservation Area will host an open house on Saturday, October 19 at 10:00 a.m.  The “Friends” is a newly formed, non-profit preservation group created to protect the intertidal zone at the mouth of the Little River.  The event begins at 10:00 a.m. at The Little River Center, located at 290 Northport Avenue, Belfast.  There will be a brief members meeting, a press conference at 11:00, and the official opening of the conservation area at 11:30.  Anyone interested in joining the group or in hearing the story behind its formation and the legal challenges facing its founders, Judith Grace and Jeffrey Mabee, is invited to attend.  The Grace-Mabee property is at the center of the current controversy over Nordic Aquafarms desire to build a land-based salmon-raising operation nearby.  For more information, contact Andy Stevenson at
