In Augusta, Maine, the Edwards Dam blocked native sea-run fish from their spawning habitat for more than 160 years. But 20 years ago on July 1, 1999, that dam came down!
Thanks to years of work by NRCM, American Rivers, Atlantic Salmon Federation, Trout Unlimited & its Kennebec Valley chapter, & others, the Kennebec has been reborn! Tens of millions of sea-run fish have traveled up the river in the past two decades, & Osprey, Bald Eagles, sturgeon, & other wildlife now flourish!
