TOGETHER we are a force for nature.

We believe in saving 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.  As a regional land trust, we work on a scale that matters to create resilient natural communities.

Land, Water and Community are the soul of our work.  Keeping the Sheepscot River and its tributaries from the headwaters to the bay clean and connected and protecting Damariscotta Lake from contamination are part of what we do.

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