EVENT: 1% for the Planet

EVENT DATE: Jul 07, 2013

THE STORY:

Team Penobscot is coming together again, with additional runners, to help heal the Penobscot River! Following upon a tradition begun last year with the 2012 Boston Marathon, runners representing the Penobscot Indian Nation and in support of efforts to restore the entire suite of native sea-run fisheries to the watershed are in training for their next great challenge: the 1% for the Planet Mad Marathon in Waitsfield, Vermont, on July 7th!

The Penobscot River Restoration Trust and its public and private partners are working to undo more than two centuries of damage that too many dams have inflicted upon the Penobscot River. Removing the lower two dams and bypassing a third opens up nearly 1000 miles of habitat for endangered Atlantic salmon, sturgeon, river herring and eight other species of sea-run fish in Maine. As fish passage is improved at four remaining dams and energy increased at others, these ecological benefits will be realized while maintaining or even increasing energy production. By reconnecting the river to the sea, the Penobscot Project promises large-scale ecological, cultural, recreational and economic benefits throughout New England's second largest watershed.
