Sheep Island is conserved!

Thanks to the generosity of donors, we have successfully completed the campaign to conserve Sheep Island.

Maine Coast Heritage Trust has closed on the acquisition of the island, and we’re so excited to add Sheep Island to our suite of existing Penobscot Bay island preserves.

We were blown away by the support for this beloved island and all the people who came together to make this conservation effort a success—thank you!

We encourage you to learn more about other Maine Coast Heritage Trust preserves in the Midcoast already conserved and open to you. Or perhaps you’re interested in staying in loop about what’s going on in coastal conservation? Sign up to receive email updates from MCHT.

There’s more work to do, and you can be a part of it!

Were you inspired by the Sheep Island project? Well, MCHT is now working to conserve dozens more incredible places like it up and down the coast.

Make a gift today to MCHT to support the effort to keep the coast open, healthy, working, and beautiful. We’ll put your donation right to work for the coast.

Thank you!
