HERE'S THE STORY:
The Penobscot Indian Nation invites you to help heal Maine’s mighty Penobscot River.
By donating to sponsor Team Penobscot’s run in the 2012 Boston Marathon, you can help bring the Penobscot River Restoration Project to life.
This visionary plan aims to restore access to some 1,000 miles of river habitat for endangered Atlantic salmon and 10 other species of migrating fish. By removing two dams from the main stem of the river and building state-of-the-art fish passage around a third dam, our generation can restore the access to upstream habitats that these species need to thrive. This will in turn trigger waves of cascading benefits throughout the watershed—for all of the wildlife and people that rely on the river.
All proceeds will go directly to the project. Please support this amazing restoration by hitting “donate,” above right.
