A lot of important conservation work is funded by Maine’s business community. Today I’ll tell you about one company’s conservation work: Poland Spring Water, owned by Nestle Waters. Poland Spring was a strong supporter of the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine during my tenure there, and has continued to support my writing as a sponsor of my website and outdoor news blog.
I’ve enjoyed working with Poland Spring’s Maine staff over the years, including the work we did to transfer use of a hatchery near Kingfield that was purchased by Poland Spring to Maine’s Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. Poland Spring also paid the memberships of any employee that wanted to be a SAM member – and that turned out to be 58 workers!
