100-mile Wilderness, ME
In an effort to help protect and enhance the integrity of the wild brook trout fishery on its Maine property, the Appalachian Mountain Club has been working with The Nature Conservancy, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service and Trout Unlimited to remove culverts or improve several stream crossings to enhance passage for wild brook trout in Maine’s 100-Mile Wilderness region. This is a pilot project of the Keeping Maine's Forests initiative, of which AMC is a partner.
