Penobscot Nation

kkʷey (hello), and welcome to the home of the Penobscots
"...the oldest continuous government in the world..."

DNR Staff will be completing two bridge construction projects in Mattamiscontis over the next two weeks. 

Construction will begin Tuesday, September 13th.   The plan is to begin on the Mattamiscontis Stream bridge (Outlet of Big Mattamiscontis Lake) and then start on the Mountain Brook Bridge the following week.     

The loop road will allow access to either side of the bridge sites so travel in the territory will not be restricted by the construction, aside from having to take the longer way to Mattamiscontis Mountain or the Little Mattamiscontis Lake area.

Any questions please call either:

Dan McCaw, Fisheries Manager at (207) 817-7377

Or Chuck Loring, Forest Manager at (207) 817-7339.

Maine CDC/DHHS Heat Index Warning

Maine will experience an unusually hot and humid period of weather over the next few days, with the National Weather Service issuing a Heat Advisory across most of the state.

Recommendations for Caregivers of vulnerable Community Members (e.g., infants/young children, elderly, chronic health conditions):

       Check in twice a day on older persons and people who cannot care for themselves

       Look for signs of heat illness, especially heat exhaustion and heat stroke

       Make sure they have access to air conditioning

       Encourage them to drink more fluids

       Talk with their health care provider about appropriate fluid intake if they take medications

Never leave anyone, especially children, pets, or those with special needs, in a parked car – even briefly – as temperatures can become dangerous within a few minutes.
