In spring of 2022, native alewives will return to China Lake for the first time since at least 1783. Over the past five years, the China Lake Alewife Restoration Initiative has removed or built fishways at six dams on Outlet Stream in Vassalboro, reconnecting China Lake to the Sebasticook River and the ocean. Eventually the restored run is expected to total close to a million returning adult alewives. Come join the celebration of this momentous return!
