In November 2023, Friends of the Presumpscot River (FOPR) gave our lead advocate, Casco Baykeeper Ivy Frignoca, the Chief Poulin Award, at their annual Three Sisters Dinner. Ivy was given the award for her work to bring together Bay lovers, river advocates, and legislators to pass a four-year moratorium on new discharges into the Presumpscot River, near where the river empties into Casco Bay. This legislation was a big win for the Bay and for the Presumpscot. Congratulations, Ivy! Friends of Casco Bay is proud to have FOPR as a partner in the watershed.
