BELFAST — Maine’s new Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument will be the topic of the Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition’s program at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 14, at Belfast Free Library, High Street.
Tim Hudson, the Superintendent, will take us through the landscape with pictures, tell us about the monument’s formation, its current status, and answer our questions.
Hudson started working for KWWNM in August 2016, when it was designated. With degrees in Civil Engineering and Environmental Health Engineering, he has worked diligently to assure minimal visitor impact on the park’s natural features. Tim has worked for the National Park Service since 1967, including in Alaska, and 20 years as chief of facilities in Yellowstone.
Maine’s national monument is in current controversy, and we will be able to investigate itand learn the next steps.
The Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition works to support conservation and stewardship of natural, scenic, and public access resources of the Belfast Bay watershed through research, community-building, and education.
