First LakeSmart property on Kimball Pond

November 28, 2023

With our goal of bringing the LakeSmart program to every lake and pond in the watershed, we are excited to announce the very first LakeSmart award on Kimball Pond in Vienna: Congratulations Nancy Gregory and Tom Hale!

“We joined the LakeSmart program with a commitment to preserving the natural beauty of Kimball Pond and the 30 Mile River Watershed. The evaluation process was quite thorough. The program recognizes positive actions we have taken. It encourages us to think carefully about sustainable practices as we plan gardens, landscaping and maintaining our property. Whitney went so far as to prepare a rain garden design to manage runoff using the naturally occurring low spots on our property. We encourage other homeowners in the 30 Mile River Watershed to participate in this program and become stewards of Maine’s lakes and ponds, ensuring their beauty and vitality for years to come.” – Nancy & Tom
