Founded in 2005, APPLE strives to promote and protect the historical, cultural, ecological and economic environment of the Lubec area through environmentally sound tourism.

Tours of Lubec and Cobscook began providing tours in 2005 of Sightseeing and History of Lubec and Campobello, Explore the Intertidal Shore, and Bogs and the Ice Age.  The Tours have been converted to downloadable self-guided recordings, with Walking on Water Street, Bogs and the Ice Age, Explore the Intertidal Shore and Sightseeing and History of Lubec now available at  for rent (see video) in Lubec at the  Eastland Motel.

APPLE also maintains the website

Working with the Maine State Planning Office and the Ocean Conservancy, APPLE spearheads a Lubec Coastal Cleanup on Maine Coast Week in September which has led to our campaign "Plastic-Free Lubec" to eliminate single-use plastics to keep them out of our ocean.

APPLE has received nonprofit designation (501(c)(3) from the IRS.

Volunteers are needed, to help with the Coastal Cleanup, maintaining this website, and for the APPLE board of directors.
