TOGETHER we are a force for nature.

We work to save the places you love here in the heart of the Midcoast; places for majestic moose and playful river otter and for all of us who need places for quiet solitude or exercise to let go of stress. We are a regional land trust with an active Nature Center in Jefferson and opportunities to play and explore from Freedom to Wiscasset and Somerville to Newcastle.

Water is the source of all life; that’s why we work to protect the Sheepscot River and it’s tributaries from the headwaters to the bay and Damariscotta Lake – the Midcoast’s largest freshwater lake.

Part of that work includes assuring your region’s ecosystems remain whole so that they might continue to thrive in the face of a changing climate including warming temperatures, increased intensity of storms and a rising sea.

Our members bring a wealth of knowledge, energy, and heart to their love of Midcoast Maine. Join us and bring your passion for keeping the Heart of the Midcoast unspoiled.


From Montville to Newcastle - trails, lakes and rivers for you to explore.
