**DUE TO THE UNAVAILABILITY OF PANELISTS THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.**

Join this panel of Maine scientists, policy makers, activists and community members in a conversation that explores our human connections to and visions for Maine’s watershed. What were pre-colonial Maine’s waterways like, and what are Native Americans’ roles in watershed restoration? What are the coastal animal migrations that occur around you? How is the changing landscape impacting Maine’s future? What is our human role and responsibility as stewards of this land and water? What are the barriers that exist, and what visionary policies exist for restoration, management, and stewardship? Precedes a multidisciplinary performance focusing on the relationships of humans to our environments by Miwa Matreyek, “Glorious Visions in Animation.”
