Stewardship Plan

The York River Watershed Stewardship Plan was developed in 2018 as part of the York River Wild and Scenic Study. It characterizes the river and its watershed and it coalesces information from many state and local plans and assessments, plus extensive community input. It includes recommendations to preserve the watershed’s natural resources, water quality, cultural and historic resources, working waterfront, recreational resources, and other river values.

Separate volumes that accompany the Stewardship Plan:

There’s an accompanying “Story Map” – or online tour – that provides highlights, maps and data from the Stewardship Plan. The Story Map was developed by Wells Reserve with funding from the York Community Initiatives Fund of the Maine Community Foundation. View the Story Map here:
