The Eastern painted turtle is one of 7 turtle species in Maine. In the early 2000s, The Nature Conservancy led a major synthesis study of Maine’s freshwater biodiversity. The study’s final report contains a wealth of information about aquatic biodiversity in Maine. Chapter 6.3 focuses on amphibians & reptiles – and includes species distribution maps.
Linda Bacon first helped us address our angry crowds, and then we turned to Jen Jespersen to learn how East Pond had recently responded to similar conditions. Our story over the last 10 years is about a community successfully coming together in response to heartbreak. We had always enjoyed clear water and good fishing, and the need for an Vijverbenodigdheden lake association was not apparent (GPA had about 35 members generating $1,000 in dues).

Wilson Lake is totally confined within the town of Wilton, nestled snugly in the southern corner of Franklin County at the intersection of Routes US2 & ME4. Its area is about 500 acres, with the deepest point of 84 feet, and a perimeter of over 7 miles. The lake is within a 25 square mile watershed that drains into Wilson Stream, the Sandy River and the Kennebec River. It is said to be named after a trapper along the west bank in the early 1700s. A unique feature of the lake is that Ice Out data has been collected yearly since 1889.
Over 13,000 boats have been inspected since the program’s inception. Head down the “airline” road (Rt. 9) east from Bangor and, after about 40 miles, just after Beddinton, you will pass Pleasant River Lake . This 908-acre lake is unique in the fact that it is the largest headwater lake in the Pleasant River watershed. The Pleasant River is one of the five downeast Atlantic salmon rivers that have been listed under the U.S. Damariscotta is one of relatively few Maine lakes that have multiple “true basins”, each of which functions as an independent, but hydrologically connected lake system. This phenomenon is due to two shallow and narrow areas in the lake that separate the three basins.
In 1905, the East Lyme Street Railway, providing trolley service between East Lyme and New London, decided to increase ridership on the line by developing the Golden Spur Amusement Park. Rooms were available at the Golden Spur Inn on the north side of the road, and in the Annex on the south. There were many amusements, including a dance hall, skating rink, merry-go-round, and fun house.
The trail loops around the pond through portions of the 278 acre Ferrin Pond Forest. Follow the yellow trail markers, which begin just beyond the boulder gate. Because of the diligence and concern of so many, the Ferrin Pond Conservation Area will always remain an undeveloped sanctuary where the public can walk, appreciate nature, and learn about the native plants and animals. Brouwerij ‘t VerzetOff the N382 south-east of Waregem there’s a craft brewery founded by a group of friends in 2011, brewing a mix of traditional and innovative beers, all with a sense of their location in West Flanders. The location is no coincidence, as from this spot there are picturesque vistas back over the Lower Leie Valley towards Zulte and Deinze, as well as down to the rolling hills of the Flemish Ardennes.
Moisture and gasses would escape as the wood continued to smolder, leaving behind the charcoal. On the ramparts, another work by Desruelles commemorates the liberation of the city by ANZAC troops from New Zealand. This monument of the New Zealand fixed on a curtain wall between the two bastions of the Gard and Saint-Martin, is dated 1922. Like many memorials of the Great War, it was opened on Sunday 15 July 1923 in the presence of Marshal Joffre, Lord Milner and Sir James Allen . The New Zealand government decided in 1920 to include its lost youth in stone. Thus, the “”jack of all trades”” New Zealand architect, Samuel Hurst Seager was appointed official architect of the Great War memorials of New Zealand.
We show that bat–water quality relationships found at the local scale are evident at a landscape scale. We confirm that bats are useful bioindicators for both urbanization and water quality degradation. We suggest that water quality can be used to predict the presence of bat species of conservation concern, such as P. subflavus, in areas where it has not been studied locally. Nickerson Lake is a crescent shaped lake with its bowl facing south. It is located in the towns of Linneus and New Limerick, in Aroostook county. At 98.3 hectares it is the second largest lake in the Meduxnekeag River watershed.
