Maine Lakes Conservancy Institute The Maine Lakes Conservancy Institute (MLCI) was founded in 1999 to address the environmental and economic needs of Maine’s lake-based communities through education. We are committed to understanding, sustaining, and preserving the value of our lakes and the communities dependent upon them. We believe our programs increase the level of stewardship shown towards our lakes. By taking young people out on the water to investigate our lakes and engaging them in activities that raise their awareness, increase their appreciation, and broaden their understanding of how Maine lakes work, our lakes will be better off.
