30th Anniversary Campaign

Help us purchase and preserve 10 acres adjacent to our campus on Great Wass Island

Downeast Institute has an unexpected and unique opportunity to purchase 10 acres of land that will help us strengthen marine research capacity in the environmentally important and underserved eastern Maine region.

Purchasing the land that comes with five existing waterfront cottages will:

  • increase available accommodations for students and visiting researchers;
  • create affordable housing for employees;
  • preserve existing uses of the waterfront; and,
  • add a valuable intertidal habitat to our campus for studying commercially important shellfish.
