The development and organization
of the Androscoggin River Watershed Council has taken more than
three years. The ARWC was officially born on July 23, 1999 at
Bonny Park in Auburn, Maine, during the 4th Annual Androscoggin
River Canoe Trek. A group of concerned people came together to
approve the bylaws and elect the fist Steering Committee.
The Council is a collaborative effort
supported by diverse interests in the Androscoggin River Watershed,
including individuals, small businesses, large businesses, municipalities,
state and federal governments, and non-profit organizations.
