We are committed to playing an active role in our community. Here are some of the organizations we support and participate in:
Georges River Land Trust
The Georges River Land Trust’s mission is to conserve and steward the natural resources and traditional character of the Georges River watershed region for the public benefit.
Mid-coast Maine’s 225-square-mile Georges River watershed is a unique and historic area of mountains, sea coast, lakes, tidal streams and inlets through which the beautiful St. George River flows. The watershed extends from Montville in Waldo County to Port Clyde in Knox County where the 51-mile-long river flows into Muscongus Bay.
