BENEFITING: The Nature Conservancy

EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012

THE STORY:

The Penobscot Indian Nation invites you to help heal Maine’s mighty Penobscot River.

By donating to sponsor Team Penobscot’s run in the 2012 Boston Marathon, you can help bring the Penobscot River Restoration Project to life.

This visionary plan aims to restore access to some 1,000 miles of river habitat for endangered Atlantic salmon and 10 other species of migrating fish. By removing two dams from the main stem of the river and building state-of-the-art fish passage around a third dam, our generation can restore the access to upstream habitats that these species need to thrive. This will in turn trigger waves of cascading benefits throughout the watershed—for all of the wildlife and people that rely on the river.

All proceeds will go directly to the project. Please support this amazing restoration by hitting “donate,” above right.

The Penobscot Indian Nation shares more than a name with the Penobscot River. After centuries living along its banks, deriving their sustenance, transportation, culture and ceremonial ways from the watershed, the Penobscot people came to share an identity with the river.  Their tribal lands include almost 200 islands in the river, with Indian Island, near Old Town, being the heart of the community.               .

In modern times, the tribe has worked tirelessly to restore ecological balance to the river, and has been a key architect and champion of, the restoration project.

Team Penobscot is honored to run in the Boston Marathon as representatives of the Penobscot Indian Nation.As they train in Maine’s chilly winter, and when they run those 26.2 miles in Boston, each step will be focused on the intention of restoring the river. The team includes:

·         Chief Barry Dana, who served as tribal chief in the early 00’s.

·         Dale Lolar, a counselor at tribal health services.

·         Police Chief Bob Bryant, who has been married to a tribal member for 25 years and has children who are tribal members.

Please donate today, to support these runners, the Penobscot River Restoration Project, and all the wildlife and human communities who rely on the river for their livelihoods.

Thank you!
