Volunteer Leadership

RC DC Mtg Oct 20 2012 Adj WebVolunteers are essential to fulfilling the mission of Lake Stewards of Maine (LSM) by monitoring their lakes. But volunteers also play a critical role administrating LSM programs through the all-volunteer Board of Directors and Volunteer Coordinators. LSM has two types of Coordinators:

Regional Coordinators maintain contact with volunteers, organize re-certification workshops, and respond to requests from volunteers.

Data Coordinators enter water quality data from volunteer data forms into the LSM’s LakeData database program.

Our Mission

Lake Stewards of Maine (LSM) works to protect Maine lakes and to promote lake stewardship through widespread citizen participation in the gathering and dissemination of credible scientific information pertaining to lake health.


LSM is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization committed to the collection of information pertaining to lake water quality. For 50 years, trained volunteers throughout Maine have donated their time so that we may all learn more about one of Maine’s most beautiful and important resources — our lakes.
