Maine Audubon is hosting a Stream Smart workshop on Wednesday, April 3 from 8:30 am-3 pm in Fort Kent. Join us to learn about: the value of free-flowing streams; the regulations that are applicable when working on road/stream crossings; the principles of building Stream Smart crossings; the costs and benefits of Stream Smart crossings; and where to look for funding. We will be in the classroom from 8:30 am-12:30 pm, we will provide lunch, then from 1-3 pm we will go out in the field to look at a variety of crossings.

Maine Audubon works with partners all across the state to provide training on how to construct culverts and bridges that restore and maintain fish and wildlife habitat while also protecting roads and public safety. Maine Audubon offers introductory workshops as well as hands-on field trainings for road professionals.

This workshop is designed for professionals responsible for road-stream crossings

  • We will cover road-stream crossing projects from site assessment to permitting and installation.
  • Emphasis is on maintaining and restoring aquatic habitat and economic values of the stream.
