Downeast Audubon is gauging interest in creating a wildlife sanctuary designation in the waters in and around Blue Hill Falls. We have created a petition to send to local state legislators that we have been in discussions with to show community and/or state support for this designation. Please sign at the link below if you support this cause, we would like to get at least 400 people from Hancock County!
