Maine scientists, policy makers, activists and community members engage in a conversation that explores our human connections to the watershed and ocean of Maine’s past, present, and future. What were pre-colonial Maine’s waterways like? How is the changing landscape impacting Maine’s future? What is our human role and responsibility as stewards of this land and water? Precedes a multidisciplinary performance focusing on the relationships of humans to our environments by Miwa Matreyek, “Glorious Visions in Animation.”
