Our Lakes are at Stake. Join the Team!

Conserving the lands and waters of
the Belgrade Lakes Region for all.

Ours is both an immediate challenge to our watershed and a need to balance conservation, protection and the needs of all who live and work in the region. To meet this challenge, in late December 2017, the Belgrade Regional Conservation Alliance and the Maine Lakes Resource Center combined forces to create 7 Lakes Alliance. 

Our

Mission

The Life of the Land and Lakes is In Our Hands.
