Torsey Has Babies!

Torsey Pond has two chicks near the north entrance to the narrows. Please paddle or boat carefully in this area.

Torsey Pond did loose two other nests: One was washed out form a fast moving and heavy rainstorm. The nest was located in the middle of the south section of the lake between Torsey Shores Rd and Stage Coach Rd on a flaoting island. The other nest, with two visible eggs in the Northwest cove on one of the islands, was abandoned.

Torsey Pond Loon Rafts

The TPA, in collaboration with Maine Audubon, built and launched 2 nesting rafts for our loons April 22, 2022.

The Pond

The Torsey Pond Association (TPA) was formed in 1988 with the express purpose to preserve Torsey Pond, its shores and dam for all property owners around the lake, and for the towns of Readfield and Mt. Vernon. Members support the work of the association with annual dues, donations and by volunteering on various committees. The TPA is governed by a board of directors and members can vote on initiatives at an annual meeting that is held in July. If you haven’t already done so, please consider supporting the work of the TPA by becoming a member and making a donation securely Online or Mail-In from our Membership Page!
