TOGETHER we are a force for nature.

Medomak Valley Land Trust Joins the team!

In 2016, four local land trusts and conservation organizations merged to become Midcoast Conservancy.  This year we welcomed a whole new group of friends to the family: Medomak Valley Land Trust (website here) (map here) We are so glad you are with us!

Land, Water and Community are the soul of the work we share.  The Medomak River, the Sheepscot River and Damariscotta Lake are three jewels of Midcoast Maine. By joining forces, we can do even more to protect and connect these rivers and their tributaries from the source to the sea and keep Damariscotta Lake healthy and free from contaminants.

Creating resilient communities includes you. Check out one of our many programs at our Hidden Valley Nature Center in Jefferson. You will find a community ready to welcome you. Join us and bring your passion for keeping the Heart of the Midcoast unspoiled.
