State of Maine Department of Conservation (DOC)

The Department of Conservation is a state agency aimed at protecting Maine’s wilderness through conservation and fostering awareness through recreation.  The agency regulates the management, development and protection of Maine’s natural resources, including forest, unorganized territory, nature and historical parks, and other pieces of land.  The agency seeks to balance conservation needs with responsible use of land, water and minerals. The Maine DOC is divided up into several different departments including Bureau of Parks and Recreation, Maine Forest Service, Bureau of Geology and Natural Areas, Land Use Regulation Commission, and Natural Areas Program.
For more information on the DOC's work along the river, search 'Androscoggin River' on the Conservation search bar (not the State Search bar).
