Our mission: To protect and conserve land and traditional land uses...
and water resources...
for the benefit of the public.
February/March 2014 Events
March 8: A winter gourmet hike to the summit of Rumford Whitecap on March 8th at 9AM. Hike starts at trailhead across from the East Andover Road parking lot. Ice creepers, poles, warm layers, water, snacks and "gourmet morsels" to share at the top! Let your imagination concoct a winter delicacy worthy of backpacking up the trail! (Also, bring your own utensils.) Please call the Land Trust office at 207-824-3806 or email email@example.com to give us a heads up if you are planning to attend so we have some idea of numbers. Late comers are always welcome.
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.
