Welcome to the Androscoggin!

The mission of the Androscoggin River Watershed Council is to continuously improve environmental quality, encourage stewardship and promote healthy and prosperous communities in the Androscoggin Watershed.

The Androscoggin flows for nearly 170 miles, beginning at Lake Umbagog on the Maine/New Hampshire border, continuing south through northern New Hampshire, heading east through western Maine, then turning south again before joining with the Kennebec in Merrymeeting Bay and emptying into the Atlantic.  It has a rich geological and human history.  Having once been rated as one of the most polluted rivers in the country, it served as the inspiration for the Clean Water Act and now boasts great fishing, wildlife habitat, and recreation opportunities.  The Androscoggin River Watershed Council encourages collaboration among industry, conservation groups, landowners, and other interests to ensure that the Androscoggin continues to be a healthy asset to the communities on its banks and the wildlife it supports.

COVID-19 Update

Hello River Fans. Due to COVID-19 all May Source to Sea events in NH have been cancelled. That said check out the list below of events we are hoping to be able to still hold starting in July. A decision on how we will proceed with the Source to Sea will be forthcoming June 1.

We are still operating on projects in accordance with proper social distancing. We also hope to reschedule our conference in the fall.  Consider supporting our work with a membership upgrade or a one-time donation today. Thank you. 

As always stay tuned for any on-going news or late minute changes due to COVID-19 distancing rules or event gathering limitations. We look forward to seeing you soon.
