Potluck and Presentation: Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument

Date: Thursday, April 19, 6:00 pm - 8:45 pm

Join us for an exciting presentation on Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument. We will entice you to visit KWWMN with a video. In September of 2017, a team of four Maine-born photographers and filmmakers set off into Katahdin Woods & Waters to document the land in hopes of encouraging more public use. Their film, Monumental , documents a five day, 64-mile-long human powered circumnavigation of the park by canoe, bike, and foot. Learn about the many things to see and do in the monument from those who are involved in the activities going on up there. We'll entice you with photos and details on how you can enjoy what the monument has to offer and how you can get involved in shaping this gem. We'll also hear from the newly established Friends of Katahdin Woods and Waters, a membership organization working to raise funds and support for the Monument. They'll share early accomplishments and plans moving forward, including how you can raise your voice during the management planning process for the Monument's future.  Potluck dinner will start at 6pm (please bring a dish to share, help us be green and bring your own cup, plates and silverware). Presentation at 7pm. Free and open to the public.

The Lost Villages of Flagstaff Lake

Date: Tuesday, June 5, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The creation of Flagstaff Lake wrote a sad chapter in our history. The three villages of Bigelow, Dead River and Flagstaff were inundated and their residents forced to relocate and scatter. Buildings, most of them purchased by CMP prior to the gates in the dam being closed, were either razed, sold, or moved by their owners. Some buildings were left to be flooded. Long Falls Dam was constructed in 1948 and 1949 and impounds an area of approximately 22,000 acres. Alan Burnell and Kenny Wing, lifelong Mainers have had a shared passion for the story. They will share the photos and storied from their book, Lost Villages of Flagstaff Lake.
