The “Return of a River” episode of the “Sustainable Maine” series has been nominated for a Boston/New England Emmy in the Environmental category.
The Maine Public Broadcasting Network (MPBN) show highlights the research of Maine’s Sustainability Solutions Initiative (SSI), based at UMaine’s Senator George J. Mitchell Center. SSI is helping communities solve interconnected economic problems while advancing sustainability science. SSI and Maine EPSCoR collaborated with MPBN to create the series.
The “Return of a River” episode features SSI researchers from the University of New England and the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve studying the Saco River Estuary to develop a grading system to assess the health of the estuary using key indicators that matter to local stakeholders.
MPBN will rebroadcast “Return of a River” at 1 p.m. Sunday, May 4. Boston/New England Emmy winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on Saturday, June 7. More information about the “Sustainable Maine” series is online.
