MAHOOSUC LAND TRUST

Keeping a Globally
Important Forest Intact

Mahoosuc Land Trust has conserved roughly 25,000 acres through its publicly accessible preserves, and conservation easements on private lands. 

 

These include Androscoggin River boat landings, iconic summits like Rumford Whitecap and Puzzle Mountain, working farms and forests, and dozens of miles of multi-use recreational trails. 

Mahoosuc Land Trust is conserving and sharing the Mahoosuc region's important natural lands with its wild and human communities, now and for the future. Today we also seek to better understand the Wabanaki cultural importance of the lands we steward.

Tradition of Conservation

Since 1989, MLT has focused on those critical lands which protect biodiversity, water quality, and habitat connectivity, mitigate climate change, and deliver recreational, scenic, cultural, economic, spiritual, and ecological benefits. These lands include “working landscapes” contributing to local economies and quality of life, provided that they also support other conservation values.

 

Increasingly, we see how the region depends on a tourism economy attracted to the region’s beautiful open space and high quality nature-based recreational offerings resulting from government and non-profit conservation.
