The Friends of Fort Gorges (FOFOGO) took board members of the new organization Portland Parks Conservancy out to Fort Gorges, a former United States military fort built on Hog Island Ledge in Casco Bay, to show them what could be a lovely park in the Portland Harbor. Roger Berle, Board President of Friends of Fort Gorge, took the group out in his boat "Freedom". The weather was lovely, and folks were inspired by Paul’s vision. Tom Handel and Lesley MacVane covered the excursion as a Member Highlight for Portland Media Center, so check out our Member Pages to see their promo, this episode, and many many more!
