The Aroostook Drop is coming...

...next week! We’ll have the latest installment of our Climate Driven series starting Monday. Stories from “The County” include: new strands of potatoes able to keep up with a changing climate, “Climate Smart Forestry” in Maine and how large land owners are embracing it, and how the Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians are trying to restore salmon to a Maine river.

Across our Maine Public Newsroom, stories include a check-in on the heat-up in the Governor’s race, farmers figuring out how to handle dry summers, and a new look for Disney’s “Little Mermaid”…(my daughter will be excited about that one 😊)

Also in this edition: special coverage of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on Morning Edition Monday and what happens when a city puts pedestrian design first.

Cool weather…sweater weather for Gilmore Girls fans? Tweed weather? What do you think?
