Education & Outreach
Education is a critical part of protecting Sebago Lake, the source of drinking water for a sixth of Maine. The Portland Water District provides education and outreach to visitors and residents of the Sebago Lake Watershed and to our customers. Our goal? To inspire others to appreciate and protect Sebago Lake so we can drink safe, clean water for generations to come.
Our free programs provide high quality, unique, engaging educational experiences. The Portland Water District also promotes environmental education through support of area educators and partnerships with other natural resource protection organizations.
Our education staff are committed to supporting teachers, students, and families during the pandemic. We have created a list of educational resources for teachers, students, and parents, as well as a list of nature-based activities anyone can do while adhering to social distancing guidelines.
