Land trust to host wind power talk in Bath

BATH — The Kennebec Estuary Land Trust's fall lecture series will conclude with a talk on wind power at the Maine Maritime Museum at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 19.

Beth Nagusky, co-chairwoman of the Governor's Ocean Energy Task Force and director of the Office of Innovation and Assistance at Maine's Department of Environmental Protection, will present an update on the status of wind technology and site selection.

Jim Tolan of Arrowsic, a director of SgurrEnergy, an independent engineering consultancy specializing in renewable energy, will discuss the challenges of developing wildlife-friendly wind power.

Jody Jones, a wildlife ecologist with Maine Audubon, will offer a conservation perspective that includes how wind turbines may impact bird migration routes.

The event is supported by the Bath Savings Trust Co. A $5 donation is suggested at the door.
