Keep Bath Beautiful Clean Up Day is partnering the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust Storm Drain Stenciling Blitz on April 27 from 1pm to 4pm. Teams of 2 to 5 members can pre-register to stencil storm drains with the message “Keep it Clean, Drains to River” throughout downtown Bath. Participants will be trained in stenciling technique before heading out to paint. This volunteer activity is perfect for families, neighborhood groups, scout troops, service clubs, and local businesses to promote a cleaner city and unpolluted waterways. Storm drain stenciling is a nationally used and fun community-building activity. By painting the friendly “keep it clean” message near storm drains, it serves as a reminder to residents and visitors that what goes down the city’s storm drains can end up in the Kennebec River.

Impact of Weather on Maritime History is focus of 2014 Maritime History Symposium – May 3
MMM’s 42nd Annual Maritime History Symposium, to be held Saturday, May 3, is titled “These Contrary Winds: Weather and its Effects on Ships, Mariners, and Maritime History.” After all, weather has been the companion on every voyage ever made. Scheduled speakers will present on weather and climate topics at both the micro and macro levels, discussing specific instances when weather was the overriding element of a maritime event or about long range climate trends that changed the course of maritime and human history. An exhibit of the same name will be on view in the museum’s Marjorie M. Kramer Gallery featuring paintings, photography, and artifacts which highlight the perverse yet privileged place of weather in the eyes of the mariner.
