Our Mission

Waterview Consulting provides science-based strategic planning, communication, and stakeholder engagement services for non-profit organizations, businesses, governments, and academic entities to advance environmental management, conservation, and sustainability.

Our Approach

Robust scientific data and information are essential but not sufficient to bring about beneficial changes for ecosystems and people. Equally important are effective strategic communication and collaboration involving decision makers, stakeholders, and subject matter experts.

Waterview specializes in working at this critical nexus to assist clients in reaching their goals for sustainable relationships between people and natural systems. We offer deep experience in finding solutions through our unusual blend of scientific fluency, communications savvy, and environmental expertise.

For more than fifteen years, we’ve told stories of ecological sciences, conservation, and management though words, visuals, and interactive media. We plan and implement communication and engagement strategies, facilitate knowledge co-production processes, create all types of print and electronic communication products, and conceptualize and build decision-support tools. Learn more: Services

We love a challenge and take pride in delving as deeply as necessary into complex fields of knowledge, building relationships across traditional boundaries, and navigating projects to successful results for our clients. Waterview is a client-focused company known for being responsive and adaptable. We want our clients to be happy. Much of our work comes from repeat clients and word of mouth.

Please contact us for a no-obligation conversation. We’d love to hear about your work and discuss our services. 

Waterview Consulting is based in Harpswell, Maine—a town with 216 miles of coastline, 200 islands, some 4,700 people, and 103 square miles of ocean and estuarine water. While some of our clients are located in Maine, most are located hundreds or thousands of miles away, and we collaborate through teleconference, email, video conference, and in-person meetings.
