Goals: The PWA is a lakes association and land trust working to protect the natural resources of the Pemaquid peninsula through water quality monitoring, education, and voluntary land protection.
Activities in support of PWA's goals have three major components. Our water quality monitoring program establishes sound baseline data from which we can monitor future changes in water quality. Our Earthways environmental education program aims to increase understanding of the natural resources of the watershed and the practices that promote compatible development. And our Beachcombers' Rest Nature Center at Pemaquid Beach helps to promote stewardship of the beach and local environment. Protection of areas of ecological and scenic value through the land trust program represents the third aspect of our activities.
Four preserves for hiking and hunting (in season): 40-acre Bearce-Allen Preserve, 130-acre Crooked Farm Preserve, 20-acre Doyle Preserve, and 11-acre Osborn Finch Wildlife Sanctuary (with rental cambin); water quality and land use baseline data; Beachcombers' Rest Nature Center; Pemaquid Paddlers program; Pemaquid watershed map.
