Chewonki Foundation


The Chewonki Foundation is dedicated to helping people of all ages grow individually and in community with others by providing educational experiences that foster understanding, appreciation, and stewardship of the natural world and that emphasize the power of focused, collective effort.


The conservation of land and natural resources is an integral part of Chewonki's work.


Chewonki also serves in the capacity of a land trust in Sagadahoc and Lincoln Counties as well as in other corners of Maine where program activity is concentrated.
