Midden Minders

October 18, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Cobscook Community Learning Center
10 Commissary Point Road
Trescott Township, ME 04652 United States


Maine’s coastal heritage spans thousands of years with the indigenous hunters/gatherers/fishers who relied on the rich resources of the region’s ocean, coastline, marshes, and adjacent forests. The record of their occupation and the environment in which they lived is preserved in shell middens. However, these valuable archives are disappearing as sea-level rise and changing weather patterns impact the Maine coast. The Maine Midden Minders seek to engage local citizens individually and conservation organizations to monitor and document change at coastal shell middens, and to record shell midden information for future research.
