MCHT is working to conserve one of the largest undeveloped islands in the midcoast region, which happens to be a short paddle from a mainland preserve in Owls Head.
It’s not even July and the Maine Coast Heritage Trust Stewardship staff has already covered a lot of ground—thanks in part to all the volunteers who have pitched in.
All of us at Maine Coast Heritage Trust (MCHT) mourn the loss of David Rockefeller Sr. and extend heartfelt condolences to his family.
In addition to creating public preserves and building trails, your gifts to MCHT are helping protect sacred land in Maine, like Nibezun along the Penobscot River in Passadumkeag.
A growing number of college students are attending MCHT’s Maine Land Conservation Conference. This year was no exception, with 15 young aspiring land conservationists attending from six colleges and universities.
In partnership with L.L.Bean, Maine Coast Heritage Trust has awarded six grants totaling $22,750 to enhance public access to conserved lands.
This May, as part of celebrating his 100th birthday, David Rockefeller Sr. has announced his plan to donate 1,000 acres on Mount Desert Island to the Land and Garden Preserve of Mount Desert Island.
