Flint Farm Easement
The Mahoosuc Land Trust accepted a conservation easement on 156 acres of undeveloped woodland off the Picnic Hill Road in Albany Township, a gift from Bob O'Brien and Michaela Casey of Albany. The purpose of the easement is to protect wildlife habitat, the shoreline of Flint Pond and the headwaters of Flint Brook. Flint Brook is a tributary of the Crooked River which supplies forty percent of the water supply of Sebago Lake, which is the drinking water supply for the city of Portland and eleven surrounding communities.
The Mahoosuc Land Trust is grateful to Bob and Michaela for their generous gift of the conservation easement and the Portland Water District whose watershed protection grant provided funding for the transaction.
