Restoring fish passage is nothing out of the ordinary for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Since 2009, we’ve removed more than 750 stream barriers throughout the Northeast alone, opening 7,350 river miles and 44,500 acres of wetland habitat. Thanks to a recent project in Maine, nearly complete, migratory fish have access to five more miles of the Presumpscot River…and the community benefits as well.
Don’t let the cold weather keep you indoors. Bundle up, and enjoy all there is to see and do at national wildlife refuges and national fish hatcheries in the winter.
