Maine Lakes Society mission is to promote, protect and enhance lake water quality, and preserve the ecological, economic, recreational, and aesthetic benefits of Maine's lakes. We accomplish this through science-based action, education and advocacy, and by supporting local lake associations. We strive to build a diverse and growing membership of lake associations, individuals, and businesses who actively support our mission. Our organization focuses on three program areas: LakeSmart which educates landowners about erosion and runoff; Lakes Alive! which focuses on youth education; and Advocacy in both Augusta and D.C. to promote laws, rules and regulations that protect lake health.
