The restoration of the Penobscot River is an unprecedented and innovative effort to remove two dams and build a state-of-the-art fish bypass around a third. As a result, hundreds of miles of habitat along the Penobscot and its tributaries will be re-opened for sea-run fish, with tremendous benefits to biological and human communities along the river.
Thanks to your support, this effort has had remarkable success. It's a continuing story, with many chapters closed and many more to come. Be a part of this history-making conservation achievement.
