Reservations are required.
This free, half-day workshop from Maine Audubon, Androscoggin Valley Soil & Water Conservation District and Midcoast Council of Governments covers the basics of Stream Smart principles for road crossings that help connect and maintain fish and wildlife habitat while protecting roads and public safety. Stream Smart crossings can also help you prepare for the large and frequent storm events that have been washing out roads around the state and the northeast. This workshop is specifically aimed at informing municipalities of the value of Stream Smart crossings as well as providing information about funding that is currently available to help offset the costs of these culvert replacement projects.
The morning will be indoors in a classroom setting and in the afternoon we might go out in the field to visit real world examples of road-stream crossings. We ask that participants bring their own lunch if they’d like to participate in the field visit at noon.
