The Maine Humanities Council has awarded  the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust a $1000 grant for a community outreach project to  help Maine historical societies and the general public learn about and interpret early tide mills in their area. 
Working in collaboration with the Tide Mill Institute, the Trust will hold a conference November 18 and 19th at its headquarters in Kennebunkport, where tide mill historians from Europe and from Maine will present the heritage and technology of this example of the use of tidal power.   One presentation will lay out legal issues that affected early tide mills and confront those seeking to make use of tidal energy today.  An open forum will allow Maine’s coastal historical societies to share information and to study the tide mills that existed in their back yards.  Participants will also have the opportunity to hear about and see first-hand the current archaeological work being done by the Trust at its 1740’s James Perkins tide mill site in Kennebunkport.
 An informal reception will be held at the Trust’s headquarters in Kennebunkport from 6 to 8  PM Friday evening November 18, where displays and video presentation about tide mills can be viewed.  Saturday's activities start with registration at 8:30AM; presentations begin at nine o'clock.  There is a $20 conference fee.  For more information contact Bud Warren at budw@myfairpoint.net (373-1209) or Lisa Lassey at lisa@kctofficd.com.
