Join Maine Rivers and Landis Hudson for an update on the Alewife Restoration Initiative. We’ll talk about the life cycle and history of these interesting fish and talk about why they are so important to bring back to Maine’s rivers, streams, lakes and ponds. Where are the fish now and where have they been? What are the milestones in the restoration effort and what’s coming up next? Landis will also share the Alewife Trail Map, created by Maine Rivers to help people celebrate spring with an alewife adventure. Landis will also share her favorite river books, including two new books about rivers in Maine.
