Fish, people and machines are on the run this Saturday at the Maine Forest and Logging Museum in Bradley. Celebrate the return of 100,000s of alewives making their way up Blackman Stream to Chemo Pond!

The day starts with the 2nd 5K Blackman Stream Alewife Cross Country Race at 8:30. The Lombard will be getting up steam to run in the middle of the day, sawmills will be running and there will be lots of action at the stream, with thousands of alewives and activities for the kids. An obstacle course for the kids is a fun way to learn about migratory fish. Smoked fish too!
