We work to protect our waters through education and conservation.

The Friends of the Cobbossee Watershed was founded in 2001 by a group of local residents who were concerned about declining water quality in their lakes.

A 217 square mile drainage basin in central Maine, the Cobbossee Watershed contains more than 15,000 households and attracts thousands of tourists each year.
