Conservation District Mapping Services Available for Professionals and for Landowners

The Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District offers landowners, foresters, municipalities and the public the service of creating aerial maps of their properties. The PCSWCD uses different overlays including soils information, federal and state wildlife, endangered and threatened species, and topographic information such as geography, watersheds and other natural features to enhance the aerial photos. The PCSWCD can also generate soil data reports.

The service is offered at the cost of $37.50 per hour with a minimum charge of half an hour. Please contact Lynn Lubas, Technical Coordinator, at (207)564-2321, extension 3 or at madeline.lubas@me.nacdnet.net for more information about this valuable service for professionals and for landowners in this region.

A Fun Volunteering Opportunity for All with the PCSWCD & Unity College

The Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District is partnering with the Unity College Trail Crew to offer an exciting volunteering opportunity! Join us on Saturday, October 28th and/or Saturday, November 4th for a day of trail building and maintenance at the PCSWCD Law Farm public land.

The District was deeded the Law Farm in 2009 and since that time, we have worked with countless organizations and volunteers to steadily work towards developing a series of nature trails on the property. The Law Farm Volunteer Days on Oct. 28th and Nov. 4th will give the public a chance to get outside, learn about and be actively involved in trail building, trail clearing, maintenance and nature-based stewardship efforts happening in our community.

Additionally, students can earn community service hours needed for graduation requirements and work alongside PCSWCD natural resource professionals and Unity College students that are part of the dynamic Unity College Trail Crew. Unity College, Maine’s Environmental College, is a private, liberal arts, sustainability science-based institution known for hands-on learning through a full range of environmental programs. Participating in these Volunteering Days are a great addition to your resume and will be fun for all!

Folks who are interested in helping out at the Law Farm on October 27th, November 4th or both days, should contact the Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District in advance at (207) 564-2321 extension 3, info@piscataquisswcd.org for more information. We look forward to seeing you and thank you for helping with this great community effort!

  • The Piscataquis County Soil & Water Conservation District Board meets on the 1st Wednesday of each month. ┬áMembers of the public are encouraged to join in natural resource stewardship in our community through the conservation district’s volunteer opportunities and through joining the board of supervisors.
