ROCKLAND — The Working Waterfront has received a good deal of media attention in the past year, according to The Apprenticeshop, in a news release. From Portland's proposed referendum to conflict over aquaculture lease sites to the Land For Maine's Future Fund and the oft-cited statistic that of Maine's 3,500 miles of coast, only 20 are protected as working waterfront, Maine is in a constant conversation about what its coastline should look like.
Join Merritt Carey, Wednesday, May 15, at 6 p.m., at The Apprenticeshop, for a discussion about the working waterfront, its importance to Maine's economy, and what it means to work on the waterfront in Maine today.
Carey will share personal reflections and observations about the changing culture along the coast, as well as professional insights from her work as a board member of the Tenants Harbor Fisherman's Co-op, the Maine Aquaculture Co-op, and Luke's Lobster.
There is a suggested donation of $10 for entrance to the lecture.
