    • About

      Since its founding in 1988, the Mahoosuc Land Trust has encouraged the public interest in conservation in western Maine. It supports a balance of growth and preservation and emphasizes sustainable forestry, agriculture, and traditional land use. A private, nonprofit organization, the land trust is deeply routed in the community and is governed by an active board of volunteers. It owns islands in the Androscoggin River, shoreland properties, flood plain land and mountain summits. It holds easements on woodlands and lakefronts. Trust properties and easements are located in Albany, Bethel, Gilead, Newry, Upton, Woodstock, Greenwood and Rumford. Our organization is strongly supported by volunteers and if you are interested in being a volunteer, please contact us.

      Be sure to visit our website to learn more of what we do and to see the properties we have conserved. Also, you can purchase our Androscoggin River Canoe Map and Trail Guide with a simple click.

      Late winter is nesting season for owls in the Mahoosucs and a great opportunity to see and hear these elusive birds. We will start with a quick review of the owls that live in our area, and then head out to listen to the sounds of the night. If we are lucky, we will hear owls and maybe a coyote or two. Time and weather permitting, we will also visit McCoy-Chapman Forest. Bring a flashlight. Dress for cold weather and since trails may be icy, a walking stick or foot traction is advised. ...read more
