Naval Security Group Activity
Winter Harbor, Maine


Naval Security Group Activity Winter Harbor

Located 140 miles NE of Portland, Naval Security Group Activity, Winter Harbor (NSGAWH) occupies three locations totaling 584.6 acres. This land includes mission support facilities on the Schoodic Peninsula, military housing in the village of Winter Harbor, and an operations center near Corea. The Schoodic facility on Big Moose Island is entirely within Acadia National Park, providing a large complex of undisturbed wildlife habitat.

The prime objective of the NSGAWH environmental program is compliance with federal, state and local environmental laws. Although compliance with Maine Department of Environmental Protection and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations is the top priority, the command takes every opportunity to go beyond compliance and demonstrate stewardship of natural resources. To date, the Public Works Department and Environmental Office have managed and implemented numerous environmental stewardship projects including the completion of detailed Flora/Fauna inventories, designation of 187 acres of wetland as a Navy Ecological Reserve Area, and assisting with broader Navy studies assessing the decline of neotropical birds. In conjunction with several partners, and educational natural resource video has been produced and distributed to area schools. The Sundew Watchable Wildlife Trail was established and opened to the public in 1997. For more information concerning the command's Natural Resource protection program, contact the Environmental Office at 207-963-5534, x458.

Navy Resource Management

The Navy managed more than four million acres worldwide. Much of this land is located in sensitive wetland along valuable coastlines, some of the most ecologically significant areas in the world. The location of our real estate holdings makes it imperative that we plan and execute our various military missions in harmony with our environment. It is a Department of the Navy goal to promote an environment protection ethic within the Navy work force.

The Department of the Navy supports numerous partnerships with Federal, State, local and private resource groups to promote such programs as the North American Waterfowl Management Plan, Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation, Wetlands Protection and Enhancement and Watchable Wildlife.

To succeed in its mission, and to earn public confidence , the Navy must emphasize natural resource stewardship in every aspect of its land use. It does. Come see for yourself and discover our resources.


The U.S. Navy and Partners in Flight are cooperating on an international program to promote conservation of neotropical migratory birds. For information visit http://www.dodpif.org or call Department of Defense Partners in Flight at 540-253-5675.
