Maine Environment Fall/Winter 2021: What’s Inside!
In this issue of Maine Environment, we feature a story about our work to close a loophole in Maine law that allows toxic out-of-state waste to fill our State-owned landfills like Juniper Ridge in Old Town. We also update you on our work to restore the Kennebec River above Waterville. Four dams above Waterville, owned by the international energy giant Brookfield Renewable Partners, stand in the way of a free and healthy Kennebec, blocking access to many miles of historic spawning and rearing habitat for the endangered Atlantic salmon.
In this issue you can also read about our 2021 Conservation Leadership Award recipients and meet our new Board of Directors members. You can also find out about ways to support our work to protect Maine’s air, land, water, and wildlife.
