MCHT's Next Wave

A group of donors 50 and under who are dedicated to keeping the coast open, healthy, working, and beautiful.

We created this special giving group to provide you with unique opportunities to connect with this work and with one another. The future depends on people like you getting involved in conservation and shaping the future of this organization and the coast we call home.

What we're passionate about

Doing something about climate change on the coast

To address climate change, MCHT is leading state-wide initiatives to protect and restore salt marshes and coastal rivers. These efforts are key to maximizing the coast's natural resilience and minimizing damage to people, plants, and animals.

Creating more access to the coast—free and open to all!

To create more access to the coast MCHT is conserving dozens of places annually to hike, launch a boat, access clam flats, walk the dog, play in tidepools, and so much more. See an example.

Protecting Maine’s plants and animals

We’re about creating connected habitats so plants and animals can move freely to find food. We’re also sustaining the coast's biodiversity through thoughtful land stewardship.

Community Amanda Moeser

Supporting communities up and down the coast

We’re listening, learning, and partnering with coastal communities to protect the places and experiences that matter to peoples lives and livelihoods. We’re working to find creative solutions to problems like limited or unsafe coastal access, food insecurities, and declining fisheries.
