About Us

We keep the coast Maine

We believe in protecting the singular beauty of the Maine coast and ensuring everyone has access to it. 

Right now, this extraordinary coast is facing urgent threats. Access to the shore is being cut off, climate change is negatively impacting native plants and animals, and development pressure continues to compromise the lands we depend upon.

At the end of 2019, MCHT completed an historic campaign to create more access to the coast, protect wildlife habitat, and work with Maine communities to save the places people love.
