Welcome!

The Maine Woods Consortium (MWC) is an open association of non-profit organizations, businesses and government agencies dedicated to advancing a “triple bottom line” approach (economy, environment, community) to development and conservation in the Maine Woods region. The work of the MWC is currently concentrated in three areas:

  1. Information sharing to promote awareness, collaboration and innovation among Maine Woods stakeholders;
  2. Expanding the influence of members on relevant large-scale Maine Woods initiatives; and
  3. Incubating and guiding investment in initiatives that advance the economic, community and ecological well-being of the Maine Woods region.
