The Nature Conservancy in Maine has become the latest conservation group to announce its participation in what's known as a carbon offset project to address climate change.

The project signals a long-term commitment to improve forest management with bigger trees on 125,000 acres along the St. John River. The trees essentially serve as storage for carbon.

The annual migration of the alewife is at its peak in Maine. These fish return each year to Maine's rivers and streams--and their populations are growing due to collaborative conservation efforts throughout the state. Their growth in numbers has led to a spike in commercial harvest operations as well. What is happening statewide to continue to help alewives thrive?
