Youth Conservation Corps 

The YCC is the work force of the CRLA and is made up of area high school and college students.  They are the folks that you see doing the erosion control work on landowners property during the summer months.  Keep in mind that next summer you can request help from this group to make your property LakeSmart.

They also conduct the courtesy boat inspections (CBI) at the various boat launch areas, during the summer, to help avert an invasive plant infestation.  Did you know that our lakes are surrounded by lakes with invasive plant infestations?             Please inquire as to how you can help in this all important effort, and also become a Certified Invasive Plant Patrol Monitor. 

Kennebec County Soil and Water Conservation District

The KCSWCD collaborates with the CRLA to provide technical service and design requirements for medium and large scale water quality improvement projects.  This allows the CRLA directors to focus on organizational needs and water quality strategies.
