ELLSWORTH — The Downeast Audubon will present “Maine’s Seaweed Scene” with author Susan Hand Shetterly and marine biologist Robin Hadlock Seeley 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, at Moore Community Center, 125 State St.

Susan will talk about her latest book, “Seaweed Chronicles” and the importance of protected wild habitats in the Gulf of Maine as well as good inshore jobs for people that can enhance, rather than compromise, the environment. Robin will talk about the critical role of seaweed, especially rockweeds and kelp in the nearshore ecosystem and the role of landowners in protecting rockweed habitat for shorebirds, lobster, cod and other species in light of the 2019 Maine law court decision (Ross v. Acadian Seaplants).
