Western Maine Audubon presents: Aquatic Invaders in Maine with Roberta Hill
September 8, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Western Maine Audubon will be presenting the first of its fall talk series on Wednesday, September 8 at 7 pm. “What You Should Know About the Threat of Aquatic Invaders in Maine,” will be presented by Roberta Hill, Invasive Species Program Director for Lake Stewards of Maine. In this talk, Roberta will address the following questions and more: What makes an organism invasive? What threats do invasive organisms pose to Maine’s native ecosystems? How do invasive aquatic species impact humans? What are the drivers behind introduction of invaders to Maine and the vectors exacerbating their spread within the state? What are some of the invasive species we are most concerned about here in Maine? What is Maine doing to address these concerns? Importantly, what can WE all do to help?
Due to ever-changing Covid protocols, it is still uncertain whether this talk will be held in person or as a live webinar. Please consult Western Maine Audubon’s webpage (https://western.maineaudubon.org/events/) close to the time of the talk for more information.
Roberta Hill is an aquatic ecologist and environmental educator who has been active in the field of lake protection and community outreach in Maine for thirty years.
