Midcoast Conservancy Councils

We were formed from the merger of five different conservation organizations (see our history here). The founders recognized the importance of retaining close connections to the many communities we serve. Five Local Councils, one from each of our “parent” organizations were created to represent the interest of and passions for the places from which Midcoast Conservancy evolved.

Our councils help us connect and listen – making sure local voices and priorities remain a part of who we are. Each council provides important advice, expertise, creative ideas on programming, and precious volunteer support for programs, events and stewardship.
