MCHT Summer Celebration
Thank you for all you do for the Maine coast and Maine Coast Heritage Trust! Please join us for our annual summer celebration on Mount Desert Island.
Every year, on the first Friday in August, we look forward to our annual gathering on Mount Desert to celebrate the conservation successes of the past year that you helped make possible and raise a toast to everyone who helps keep the coast open, working, healthy, and beautiful.
