As part of a larger campaign to promote public beach access, the Surfrider Foundation Maine Chapter develops educational programs and engagement opportunities to help Maine residents and visitors understand and protect their beach access rights. The Chapter also engages in strategic litigation to protect those beach access rights, on an as-needed basis. Towards this goal, on July 10, 2015, Surfrider Foundation, on behalf of its Maine Chapter, filed a motion to intervene in a lawsuit brought by property owners on Crowley Island, the Swans (“Plaintiffs”), against neighboring property owners who have attempted to cut off generations of public beach access to Crowley Island Beach. Crowley Island is in the village of Corea, just north of Acadia National Park.
