Advancing Aroostook Forestry — through video!

 

Every other week the Northern Maine Development Commission (NMDC) does a segment on WAGM called Advancing Aroostook. Jon Gulliver, Director of Investor and Community Relations APP/NMDC, says it’s “just a short 50 seconds on different aspects of economic development or business success stories. In the past we have focused on the growth of the biomass industry in the region, “Education to Industry” initiatives and provided an overview of jobs projections for Aroostook County.”

 If some of the photos look familiar, it’s because they were shot on the tour Patrick Strauch, Mark Doty, Roberta Scruggs and LUPC’s Nick Livesay took of the north Maine woods last fall.
