Our Statement on Racism and Equality

WELCOME TO MAINE LAKES

Introducing a new name and look for the PREMIER
ORGANIZATION protectiNG MAINE’S LAKES & PONDS.
 


Long known as the Maine Lakes Society, we have shortened our name to Maine Lakes, updated our logo, and upgraded our website just in time for our 50th anniversary this year. We remain a
non-profit, charitable membership organization, continuing to be the clear voice for protection of our most precious freshwater resources and wildlife habitat.

We work to support everyone who values and benefits from clean water and healthy lakes in Maine, including:

  • Lake residents and visitors who enjoy—and help protect—these precious resources;
  • The surrounding local communities that benefit economically;
  • Our 100+ member Lake Associations, as they engage their communities in lake protection efforts; and
  • The next generation of lake stewards, helping them understand lake systems and encouraging them to take action to defend Maine’s lakes against growing threats.

We invite you to learn more and join in as we celebrate our 50th anniversary in 2020.
