Additional Maine Lake Resources

Learn About Local Lakes

Lakes of Maine (previously known as PEARL) is supported through a collaboration of research, management, and citizen-volunteer organizations, and is a superb example of cooperative stewardship. It is a searchable data base for Maine lakes initially created in collaboration between the University of Maine and the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). You can access just about anything there is to know about any given lake or watershed.  Size, depth, location, fish species, plants are all available. The Knowledge Base includes the most current articles and scientific data.

This resource will not only provide environmental information, but will be a place where you can search specific lakes by name and their exact location using interactive maps and tools.
