WHAT WE DO

PROTECTED LANDS

NEWS GET INVOLVED ABOUT US CONTACT
Working for 26 years to preserve and promote the natural, recreational, and scenic character and the traditional land uses of the Medomak River watershed for the benefit of the Medomak Valley and Muscongus Bay community.

PROTECT LAND
The extraordinary landscape of the Medomak River watershed defines the character of our community and supports our rural way of life. The fate of this resource is in our hands. Until recently, our community has been relatively insulated from the rapid development sweeping Maine's coast. We have a brief window of opportunity to protect our fields and woodlands, unobstructed panoramic views from ridges and the chance to rake blueberries, drink clean water and fish in clear ponds. Since 1991, the Medomak Valley Land Trust has worked to achieve permanent conservation of these lands and their scenic and natural resources. We use a variety of conservation options to achieve this goal:

Conservation Easements
Donations of Land
Purchasing Land

If you are a resident of the Medomak River watershed and are interested in discussing conservation options, please contact the MVLT office at (207)832-5570 or email us at info@medomakvalley.org.

STEWARD LAND
Since 1991 MVLT has worked with landowners to protect over 4,000 acres of land within the Medomak River watershed. With more than half of this acreage being conserved within the last five years, MVLT’s stewardship responsibilities have increased greatly over this same period. The land trust is strongly committed to fulfilling its stewardship responsibilities for both conservation easements and fee lands and recognizes that proper stewardship is essential for maintaining a credible and sustainable organization that can expand land protection activities and effectively protect important conservation values.
COMMUNITY CONSERVATION
Every living thing is connected. The lands we inhabit contribute to our health and are vital to our watershed communities. Shell-fishermen rely on clean water to keep the river open to harvesting. Farmers and foresters need large enough tracts of land to keep their industries viable. Schools and community organizations need open spaces for hiking and outdoor activities that foster appreciation of nature in young people. Conservation works best when communities are involved. MVLT is committed to working with community groups including town conservation commissions, local snowmobile clubs, the fish and game association, youth organizations, business associations and others, to develop partnerships that promote stewardship of this beautiful place.
