Midcoast Senior College presents: "MAINE'S ENVIRONMENT AND ECONOMY: PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE" Fifty years ago Maine faced the loss of its leather and textile industries, challenges of agricultural runoff threatening water quality, a deadly insect infestation in the spruce-fir forest that threatened the forest products industry, and the devastating impact of foreign factory ships on the offshore fisheries. RICHARD BARRINGER will provide an update to the alternative sustainable economic vision published in 1972 The Maine Manifest with respect to Maine's natural resources.
