All life depends on clean water and the Midcoast is blessed with an abundance of lakes, streams, rivers and wetlands. Every day we work to keep our lakes and rivers clean and reverse decades of damage.

What We Do

  • Protect land which acts as a natural filtration system removing contaminants and controlling polluting erosion.
  • Survey and remove invasive aquatic plants that would choke the life out of a lake.
  • Monitor and protect the Medomak River for water quality and to support the clamming and fishing economies of the river.
  • Work with partners to reconnect fish to their native spawning grounds along the Sheepscot River and restore ecosystem health and opportunities for sport fishing.
  • Invest in pollution prevention programs to improve the health of the Damariscotta Lake Watershed.

We work in the watersheds of Damariscotta Lake, and the Medomak and Sheepscot rivers from the headwaters to the bay.
