The rapidly changing climate in Maine and New England is affecting lives – those of the people who depend on the region’s waters, as well as the species that live there. At the Abbe Museum in Bar Harbor, a new exhibit explores the connection between the First People and the northern waters, and how that relationship is evolving in reaction to climate change and pollution.

The Abbe Museum in Bar Harbor is receiving almost $170,000 in federal grant money to support its efforts to 'decolonize' exhibits — and to help other institutions do the same.
