Climate Change in Maine is a story map that documents the human impact of climate change on the residents of Maine. The project was created by a team of Bates College students participating in a class taught by Elizabeth Rush. As visitors navigate this Esri story map, they meet a number of individuals from cities including Lewiston, Phippsburg, and Machiasport. Visitors can learn about these residents' stories through recorded interviews, photographs, and text. In one story, Walter Goss of Mechanic Falls discusses how climate change has impacted his farm. In another story, Dylan Larose of Grey, who owns a bait and tackle shop, explains that the Crystal Lake Fishing Derby was canceled for the first time in 2016 because there wasn't enough ice for ice-fishing. This video explores the question: "How will the cancellation of such events impact the community cohesion given that the derby brings together thousands of people?"
