Ducktrap River, Maine
"Thanks to the effective partnership of 28 organizations and more than 40 landowners, the Ducktrap River Coalition has protected 82 percent of the riparian land on the Ducktrap River, home to one of eight remaining endangered Atlantic salmon populations in the United States. The Fish and Wildlife Service, one of the founding members of the Coalition, has provided the expertise, leadership, and support that has been essential to the success of our combined efforts to save this extraordinary river." - Scott Dickerson, Ducktrap River Coalition.
The Ducktrap River cuts through many jurisdictions and across many plots of private land. It traverses woods used by hunters, recreationists, and hikers. Along its course lies an occasional gravel pit. In some places, eroded banks spill sediment into the river.
