Please join us at the 50th Annual Maine Lakes Conference “Clear Vision for Clean Lakes”

Saturday, June 20, at the Hutchinson Center, 80 Belmont Ave., Belfast, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Registration is open! Please click here for early bird registration rates.

Come celebrate 50 years of hard work to protect Maine’s lakes, learn more about the risks they face in the coming decade, and see what you can do to help.

We will have a variety of presenters sharing their knowledge and expertise about lake science, native plants, LakeSmart practices, and algal blooms. Maine Audubon will be selling native plants suitable for shorefront properties. You’ll have an opportunity to meet “Lake Heroes,” and celebrate our 50th Anniversary. We’ll also be raising money for lake programs with a silent auction. Look for a prize list coming to the site soon.

The keynote for this year’s conference is Hilary Snook, Senior Scientist at the US Department of Environmental Protection’s New England Regional Laboratory. Hilary will share his experience with lake conservation in the region over the last few decades, highlighting what Maine has done right and what risks lie ahead over the next 50 years.

Early bird registration open now until May 31. Please click here.
