Our Union River
A wild, historic river
Several subcommittees formed under the Ellsworth Green Plan Steering Committee, including Our Union River.
To learn more or volunteer with Our Union River, please contact the subcommittee chair, Brett Ciccotelli.
Our Union River believes the river can strengthen and enhance our region’s future. With a nod to Ellsworth's history, we work to engage the local community by promoting a healthy waterway, protecting and improving public access, and returning the Union River to a force that drives the local economy and culture.
Union River Festival
The Our Union River subcommittee organized the first Union River Festival on May 5, 2018 at Ellsworth Harbor Park.
The community event celebrated the river with live music, free smoked fish, local organizations, and a guided paddle of the river.
