The focus will be human impact on the environment through the elements (earth, fire, air and water).

There will be presenters for each element, a potluck lunch and a discussion panel.

Tyler St. Clair, of the American Lung Association, will discuss what citizens can do to positively affect air quality in Maine.

John Beane, of the Upstream Group, will focus on dams and fish passage in Maine rivers.

A free light lunch will include a multifaith panel that will discuss environmental stewardship.
