Did you know that the number-one pollutant in Maine’s fresh water is soil washed away from eroding shorelines, roads, yards, and construction sites? Join us for a day of service at the Craig Brook National Fish Hatchery in Orland and help restore the shore and protect the waters of Alamoosook Lake. Volunteers will come together to plant native shrubs, improve beach access, and place interpretive signs along the shoreline. The shrubs will mitigate erosion of soils into the lake as well as providing essential pollinator habitat. A tour of the Hatchery's Endangered Atlantic Salmon raising facility will be offered in the afternoon for anyone interested.
Participants must sign up to volunteer using our online survey at tinyurl.com/craigbrook. Contact Robin Gropp with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org

Funding for this project, in part, was provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act. The funding is administered by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection in partnership with EPA.
