Videos from the Coast
Tour a preserve, learn from a land steward, or enjoy calming coastal moments.
Meet Amanda Moeser. Amanda is the owner/operator of Lanes Island Oysters—a small sustainably run oyster farm directly off the shores of MCHT’s Lanes Island Preserve in Yarmouth.
MCHT is committed to creating unique and lasting experiences for those getting out on the coast, and one way we do that is by creating and maintaining trails for people to enjoy.
MCHT is about protecting the character of Maine for future generations. Nowhere is that more true than on Mount Desert Island, where MCHT was founded in 1970.
In 1970, while witnessing dramatic changes to the Maine Coast, co-founders Peggy Rockefeller and Tom Cabot joined together to form Maine Coast Heritage Trust (MCHT).
