Maine Heritage

Fall 2019 - Midcoast Edition


From the President

Thank You for 50 Years

“As the Maine coast evolved over time, Maine Coast Heritage Trust evolved with it—conserving land to keep the coast beautiful, but also healthy, working, and open to the public.

Time and time again, MCHT served as a powerful catalyst for conservation, bolstering other land trusts, and playing a supporting or leading role in some of the most significant land conservation efforts in the state of Maine.”
