The New England Forests and Rivers Fund, a conservation program of the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, has awarded Midcoast Conservancy a $73,700 grant to assist with construction at Head Tide Dam in Alna in 2019.

Working closely with the Atlantic Salmon Federation, The Nature Conservancy, and many other public and private partners including the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Midcoast Conservancy is helping improve water quality and habitat for aquatic organisms throughout the Sheepscot River watershed. These National Fish and Wildlife Foundation funds will be used to support construction work at the dam to provide improved, more consistent fish passage through the dam.
