Maine Stream Habitat Viewer Release
Version 2.0 of the Maine Stream Habitat Viewer is here! First released in 2013, the Stream Habitat Viewer has successfully brought together people seeking to cooperatively restore and conserve Maine’s streams and wetlands while also looking for opportunities to ease the financial burdens of road and dam owners. The Viewer displays stream habitats for species important to Maine’s economy, ecology and way of life and also provides information about dams and road crossings that can act as barriers to fish passage and stream health.
