Connected by Water. Protected by Community.

Protecting the lakes, ponds, and streams of the Cobbossee Watershed through community engagement, conservation, and education.

What's happening Now?

Join us August 22 at the YCamp in Winthrop to celebrate 20+ years of protecting the watershed!

This year, we are honoring our longtime partners of the Cobbossee Watershed District with the inaugural Margaret Peacock Community Service Award and Clark Marine as our Business Honoree of the Year.

Thank you to our Generous Sponsors: The Peacock Family, Kennebec Savings Bank, Augusta Fuel Company, Charlie’s Chevrolet, Tex Tech, Mendall Financial Group,  Sprague & Curtis Real Estate, Vallee, Harwood & Blouin Real Estate, YCamp of Maine. 


Proceeds from ticket sales, sponsorships, and donations support our work with watershed-wide educational programming, Courtesy Boat Inspections, Aquatic Invasive Species management, and Slow-the-Flow work with shoreline property owners.

The Friends’ Education programs are a critical part of our mission to help protect our lakes, ponds, and streams.

Through various workshops, we take pride in involving the community to help with conservation efforts.

With our incredible Youth Conservation Corp and Courtesy Boat Inspectors, along with our Invasive Aquatic Plant Survey and Plant Control teams, and our LakeSmart Start program, the Friends conservation efforts are imperative to protecting our watershed.
