Caring for – and About – Our Common Home

The Social Justice and Peace Commission invites you to take yourself on a self-guided tour of the working waterfront on Saturday, June 3rd. The event will take place from 11 AM to 3 PM on the Waterfront.

Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the piers and wharves while learning about Portland’s working waterfront, its history and challenges – and the people who make their livelihoods in connection to it. The Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) will feature some interactive learning experiences for all ages. You can learn more about where to start your tour and the event itself here: https://www.walktheworkingwaterfront.com/ and what GRMI has planned at https://www.gmri.org/events/walk-the-working-waterfront/

Experiential Learning

What an opportunity for us to experience this part of our community!  We will no doubt come away with a deeper understanding of our neighbors who make their living on the waterfront – and out at sea. There’s a lot to learn about the warming waters of the Gulf of Maine and how that has an impact on our fisheries.
