Medomak Valley Land Trust

The Medomak River Watershed

The Medomak River begins as a cluster of low marshes and small streams in the rolling hills of Liberty and Appleton. These feed into a quick-flowing stream that forms the boundary between Washington and Union. As it passes through the village of Waldoboro, the Medomak cascades over a series of rock ledges to tidewater. From here the river broadens into a rich estuary bordered by extensive mudflats. Below the Narrows, the estuary opens into Muscongus Bay, with its highly indented shoreline and many islands. In all, the river and estuary extend for more than 40 miles, draining portions of 13 towns.

Over the years, both the valley and the patterns of settlement within it have been shaped by the river. The result is an extremely diverse and beautiful landscape. Wooded valleys, miles of undeveloped shore, saltwater farms, blueberry barrens, small towns, and villages these are some of the many faces of the Medomak River watershed.
