What We Do:  Conservation Education



Teaching landowners and other community members about good watershed conservation practices is one of the most important things we do as an organization. 


The SDLA provides educational materials and information to our members and the residents in the community that describe important things residents can do to protect the watershed and water quality. 


In the past we have had public outreach volunteers at the New Gloucester Community Fair and set up a display at the NG Public Library with lake conservation educational material. 


Educational materials with ideas on controlling erosion on shorefront properties are available on request by contacting

Chris Ricardi at (207) 926-3721.
