Maine is home to more than 6,000 lakes and ponds. We'll learn about the role lakes play in the state's economy, from serving as the centerpiece for some communities, boosting tourism and outdoor recreation, and providing clean water. We will also discuss the health of our state's lakes and ecosystems.
