Welcome to The Branch Lake Association

Our Vision: “Clean Clear Water in Branch Lake.”

Our Mission: “Protecting the water quality of the Branch Lake Watershed located in Ellsworth, Maine;
thereby enhancing property values and recreational enjoyment.”


Join us for "Part 2 of Conversations with Long-Time Residents" on Sunday September 1st at 3PM at the Camp Jordan Dining Hall.  What was life on Branch Lake like decades ago? How was it different, and how is it the same? If you missed the fascinating conversation with long-time residents on Sat Sept 2nd, 2023, the video recording can be viewed HERE  
Register Now to let us know you are coming on Sept 1st.  See you there!




Learn more about our programs that work to keep Branch Lake clear, clean and beautiful. We can always use a few more volunteers - it's fun and it's good for the lake!
