Friends of Casco Bay’s Board members are key partners in protecting Casco Bay.
Here’s how, in their own words:

Kathryn Reid: “Whenever we are boating, we take advantage of the pumpout service and advise other boaters about it.”

“I was in California visiting my family in Mountain View, a suburb in Silicon Valley, where there is enormous wealth. I was struck by the number of gorgeous beaches close by. Every single one had signs with skulls and crossbones, posted ‘Closed to swimming or wading.’ There were tons of people on the beach, but not one in the water. They didn’t even let their dogs go in the water. Here in Maine, we sail, kayak, and swim. Our dog Freddy goes swimming, too. Every time I get water in my mouth I think, ‘Thank goodness for Friends of Casco Bay!’”
