TU to Celebrate Dam Removal

When demolition starts on the Penobscot River's Great Works Dam on Monday, June 11, it will mark the beginning of a process that will open up 1,000 river miles to migrating Atlantic salmon, shad, stripers and numerous other fish largely absent from this river for many years. I will be there to celebrate with Secretary Salazar, TU volunteer leaders from Maine, and many others. For TU and our partners, this is proof that collaborative stewardship works. For TU members, this means that fishing will improve. And, in the not-too-distant future, when I return with my kids, we will get to enjoy a fishery that was lost for decades. It will be an incredible day.
