On May 17, 2016, Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park is offering a public presentation: Stories from the Stream – A panel discussion to celebrate the regional importance of Alewives. This event begins at 7 p.m. in Moore Auditorium on the Schoodic Institute campus, Winter Harbor.

Alewives have long been an important part of the way of life for many Mainers and tribal communities – as an important food source (for humans, other species, and as lobster bait), integral to social and cultural heritage, and an economic staple – and IRW will bring together children, author, artists, environmental experts, educators, community members to learn from each other about this incredible fish species. From author/illustrator visits to six Washington County schools, to public panel discussions on alewives’ impact, to a public film series on sustainability efforts in the Damariscotta watershed and the St. Croix River, “Small Fish, Big Impact” will have something for everyone, and culminate in a festive celebration on May 21, World Fish Migration Day!

This exciting region-wide program sponsored by Island Readers and Writers is called Alewives: Small FishBig Impact, with events throughout April and May in towns across Washington County.
