The film screenings and speaker series will be aired at several locations throughout the state, including: Portland, Falmouth, Calais, Ellsworth, Grand Lake Stream, Kittery, Lewiston, Orono, and more to be determined.

The Damariscotta screening will be followed by a moderated conversation/Q&A designed to open dialogue about community conservation across Maine.  Tim Glidden, MCHT president, Mark Ireland, filmmaker, and Damariscotta River Lakes Association's Steven Hufnagel will moderate the discussion. This program is free and open to the public.
