Celebrate Spring & Fish Passage in Penobscot!


Come to the Town Landing at Pierce Pond in Penobscot between 11am – 3pm on June 2, 2018. Join the Town of Penobscot, Town of Penobscot Alewife Committee, Maine Coast Heritage Trust and Blue Hill Heritage Trust for a celebration of two key first steps in the fish passage restoration efforts in the Bagaduce River Watershed – the new fishways at Pierce Pond and Wights Pond.

Several project partners will be on site, including lead project funders The Nature Conservancy and NOAA. Come watch the new fish passage in action, learn about future plans and projects, and (we hope) get up close and personal with hundreds of alewives!

We’ll have lots of free food, and daring visitors can try a smoked alewife – we’ll have an alewife smoker on site. 

There will be activities fun for all ages. Plus visitors will get a free Bagaduce Alewife bumper sticker!

There will be two other events happening that afternoon in the region to showcase other fish passageway happenings in the watershed, both completed and in the works.

  • 1- 2pm Visit the other new fishway at Wights Pond and learn about the project
  • 3pm Parker Pond: Guided Walk to Learn about a Future Fish passage project.
