Down East Journal (06/02/17)

This week on the Down East Journal, we look back at Operation Bumblebee, a highly classified missile testing program on Topsail Island during the late 1940's.  And, a bird watching trip takes place this Sunday at the North River Preserve in Otway.  The restored wetland area serves as a habitat for more than 240 bird species.
