The Damariscotta River Association is committed to the preservation of the river and lands surrounding it, by enhancing ecological and community values.
The woods, farms, and waters of the Damariscotta region are so essential to its economy and its way of life that it's a temptation to think of them as permanent and unchanging, beyond harm's reach. Experiences of recent years warn otherwise.
In the 20 years between 1970 and 1990, the population of the eight towns of the Damariscotta region grew by 48 percent. It is a leap in growth that followed a century of stability, a hundred years of harmony between a people and a river.
The next leap of growth, however, if unplanned, will endanger the water quality of the river and its fisheries, reduce scenic vistas, and threaten wildlife habitat. Unmanaged growth will limit access to the land and water for those who turn to it for a livelihood or recreation. The result would be the degradation of yet another coastal community, an all-too-familiar scene on the eastern seaboard.
