Coastal Mountains Land Trust will co-host an online Zoom presentation titled “Offshore Wind Energy and Wildlife: What's happening along the East Coast and in Maine,” Thursday, Feb. 11, at 6 p.m., with the Camden Public Library.
The presentation will be conducted by Dr. M. Wing Goodale, Senior Science Director at the Biodiversity Research Institute in Portland.
Goodale will provide an overview of the offshore wind energy projects on the East Coast of the U.S.; provide an update on activities in Maine; discuss how wildlife (birds and bats in particular) are expected to respond to offshore wind turbines; and discuss what is known about bird movement in the Gulf of Maine.
Email Julia at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a link to attend. The presentation platform is limited to those who get an invitation from the library.
Coastal Mountains Land Trust has worked since 1986 to permanently conserve land to benefit the natural and human communities of the western Penobscot Bay. The Land Trust manages over 12,000 acres and maintains over 50 miles of permanent trails for public access.
The Coastal Mountains Nature Program is a monthly education series hosted by Coastal Mountains Land Trust. Walks and talks explore the natural history of Midcoast Maine, helping educate the public about environment issues and increase opportunities for residents to explore the outdoors. This program will be online until it is safe to gather.
