Friends of Penobscot Bay, a Waterkeeper Affiliate



Penobscot Bay is known for its scenic beauty and its many surrounding islands. Roughly 40 miles long by 30 miles wide, this body of water is dotted with hundreds of small islands but four major islands make up the bulk of visitor activity. They are Vinalhaven, North Haven, Islesboro, and Matinicus. Monhegan Island in adjacent Muscongus Bay is also notable because it is the most famous island in Maine.

Since 1993 Ron Huber has been carrying out water quality and natural resource oversight of Penobscot Bay and the adjacent central Gulf of Maine, intervening as stakeholder in matters coming up before agencies and municipalities that could affect the living marine resources of these combined water bodies, since 1993. These actions have included investigation, advocacy, litigation and public education.
