Welcome to the Downeast Coastal Conservancy

The Downeast Coastal Conservancy (DCC) has been a conservation leader in Washington County, Maine since 1987. Our region has unique natural and cultural resources vital to the local economy and our way of life. Conserving this working landscape and areas of high ecological importance, promoting the region for tourism and enjoyment, and improving public access and recreational opportunities are critical elements to our conservation initiatives.
