As part of its most recent gallery exhibition, “Our Working Waterway,” Museum L-A has announced a new virtual program. Keeping the Androscoggin Healthy is a free public event set 6 p.m. for Thursday, Oct. 1, via Zoom,  that features Lisa Pohlmann, CEO of the Natural Resources Council of Maine, exploring the topic of the Androscoggin River, according to a news release from Museum L-A in Lewiston.

Pohlmann will expand on the history of the river showcased in the new exhibit, describe the current conditions and issues facing the river’s rehabilitation and reclassification, and explain the importance of the Clean Water Act for keeping the waterways in Maine healthy. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask Pohlmann questions about the Androscoggin during the Q&A portion of the event.
