Over the past two years, Maine Coast Heritage Trust has unveiled a handful of new preserves in Casco Bay, increasing the number of destinations for local boaters to explore.
MCHT names Dr. Owen Grumbling as recipient of the 2015 Espy Land Heritage Award.
This year we welcome 7 summer staff (in addition to our summer help at Aldermere Farm) to help our Regional Stewards keep Maine’s coast beautiful and accessible. If you’re visiting an MCHT Preserve this summer, and see a hard-working steward, say hi and thank them for their good work!
2014 was a busy year for coastal land protection efforts. Maine Coast Heritage Trust (in partnership with Federal, State, and local partners) protected more than 1,400 acres from Cumberland County to Cobscook Bay.
With striking sunsets, soaring bald eagles, and lounging seals there is something around every corner of Vinalhaven for even the most casual observers. Since 2007, MCHT Steward Kirk Gentalen has been collecting and showcasing these observations on a community supported nature blog.
This fall, MCHT partnered with three experiential learning school programs at our Erickson Fields Preserve in Rockport. The collaboration proved fruitful for eight young gardeners eager to engage with nature, serve their community, and attain personal, educational goals.
