In 1969, a group of neighbors created the Piscataquog Watershed Association (PWA) to protect critical land along the Piscataquog River. Now known as the Piscataquog Land Conservancy (PLC,) today we are proud stewards of over 5,500 acres of protected lands in 12 towns.

People & Their Places:
The Pilesky's of Pigbery Farm
At PLC we talk about preserving land for generations yet to come. Yet one can’t help wondering what will happen when land protected by a conservation easement is sold.
Will the easement be seen as a plus or a minus to potential buyers?
Will the new owners share the values of those who originally protected the property – or will there be problems?
Fortunately, the sale of the 80-acre Wasserman property in Deering to Tom and Lianna Pilesky provides a happy ending.
Help us welcome Lianna and Tom Pilesky to the PLC family – and little Isabella and Philet the pig and the golden duck wing chickens, too. We look forward to seeing the dream of Pigbery Farm come true. (More)
