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 Access Survey

The Our Union River subcommittee wants your input on accessing the Union River.

Where and how do you use the river? What would you like to see improved? Help the committee learn more by completing the survey.

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.
