Welcome

Welcome to the website of the York River Study Committee. The Study Committee was formed to work with community members to develop a York River Watershed Management Plan and evaluate the suitability of a Partnership Wild and Scenic River designation for the river and its tributaries. The Study Committee includes members from Eliot, Kittery, South Berwick, and York.

For more information or questions, contact York River Study Coordinator Jennifer Hunter.
