Maine Audubon is hosting a Stream Smart workshop on Tuesday, April 23 from 8:30 am-3 pm in Greenville. 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 8:30-12:30, bring your own lunch and if weather allows, we will go out in the field to look at a variety of crossings from 1-3 pm.

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.
  • Workshop presenters include professionals from state and federal agencies and statewide non-profits.
  • Participants can receive recertification credit for Maine DEP's Voluntary Contractor Certification Program.

MFS is a partner in the Stream Smart program.
