MLSC Mission Statement

The Maine Lake Science Center was established by the Lakes Environmental Association in 2015 to help initiate and support a new generation of lake protection.  The Center facilitates partnerships between academic researchers, lake associations, decision makers, educators, citizens and land use professionals, incorporating an interdisciplinary approach to promote policy upgrades and build communities that can effectively advance lake sustainability.

The mission of the Maine Lake Science Center is to foster and sustain initiatives that will assure the long-term resilience of freshwater systems and communities.  The Center will use an interdisciplinary solutions-oriented science approach, known as sustainability science, to link science with decision maker and policy development needs at municipal, state, and federal scales.
