Welcome to a New Year!


Maine Lakes Society Stewardship Awards

Call for Nominations

Volunteer lake stewards are the front lines of lake protection in Maine. The Maine Lakes Society seeks your help to identify the extraordinary leaders among us so that we can celebrate and learn from them. We are now seeking nominations to honor individual lake stewards and associations whose contributions are making a real difference for our lakes.

Awards will be presented at the 48th Maine Lakes Conference, June 23, 2018 at the University of Maine at Farmington.

Who inspires you? Let us know!
Lake Steward of the Year: Do you know an outstandingly inspiring person in your lake
community? Someone who has sparked important programs and seen them through to
implementation? Someone who inspires others to give lake conservation their best shot, too? We want to hear about dedicated stewards who are leaders in their communities.
Lake or Watershed Association of the Year: Are you proud of your lake association? Is it active in support of education, invasive species prevention or control, and water quality protection? How about outreach? Is your membership energized and informed? Tell us about your activities and programs so we can recognize and learn from real achievements.
Nominations are due by May 15, 2018.

Our work with lake associations and other lake conservation organizations over the past 40 years has played a key role in protecting the health of hundreds of Maine lakes to date, and provides annual networking and learning opportunities connecting our professional peers with others interested in lake conservation statewide.
