PRESERVING THE FUTURE OF OUR RIVER

Learn about the proud and rich heritage of the mighty Penobscot River, the largest river in Maine and the second largest river in new England!
A Story of Success
Our river has improved remarkably in the past forty years. For example, water quality regulations have helped to restore native sea-run fish species populations.
The Penobscot River Community Coalition (PRCC) is an alliance founded by community members and local organizations who are working to find common sense projects and initiatives that will support the Penobscot's continued recovery. The PRCC provides a helpful forum for members to share information, stay engaged with the river's recovery and, by working together across multiple communities to discuss and support local activities on and along the river, ensure those who know the River best are guiding its future.
