News from the BRCA


Here’s what people think of us

“A Big Thank You goes out to the crew of the BRCA Conservation Corps. Under the leadership of Nathan Durant, this group of young adults transformed our property into a LakeSmart environmentally designed piece of Heaven. This groups work ethic, positive attitude and attention to detail was outstanding. We are absolutely satisfied with the project.”

“Dear Mr. Leahey,
Thank you for always making science class really fun and always teaching us new and interesting things!!  Thank you for taking the time to teach us about climate change, erosion, invasive species, natural selection and more!  You’re really fun and awesome to be around and you’re a great role model for kids!  Again thank you for going out of your way to always be here to teach us!  We all really appreciate it!”

“I continue to be impressed by the variety of ways BRCA, BLA, and MLA are able to attract people to the beautiful Maine Lakes Resource Center in Belgrade Lakes. The services provided by the different non-profits housed in the MLRC are what have kept the Belgrade Lakes the natural, quite and pristine area well have all fallen in love with.”
