Friends of Casco Bay is an independent, community-based nonprofit organization founded in 1989 to improve and protect the environmental health of Casco Bay. Our work involves advocacy, education, water quality monitoring, and collaborative problem solving. Home to the Casco BAYKEEPER, we are a founding member of WATERKEEPER ALLIANCE, a network of more than 180 environmental groups working to protect waters around the world. Friends of Casco Bay fills a unique niche in New England's environmental and nonprofit community. Friends of Casco Bay is: Locally-focused: We are the only organization whose sole focus is protecting Casco Bay; Science-based: We take a scientific approach to our advocacy and our positions are often informed by data collected by our highly trained staff and EPA-certified volunteers; Pragmatic: We are results-oriented, striving for measurable outcomes that protect the environment; Collaborative: We know that protecting the Bay is a group effort, so we work closely with scientists, government officials, businesses, residents, and other partners.
