    • 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.

      Spring migration offers a unique time for people interested in birds. With millions flooding into Western Maine, there is an opportunity to locate and identify more new bird species than you will see at any other time of the year. Plus, getting out before leaves have fully budded means many birds are more visible than later in the summer. Join us at Valentine Farm Conservation Center for another in our Birding Series on May 3rd at 7:00. Don?t worry if you haven?t attended other classes. We will review tips and techniques to help you better identify the birds you see. A special focus will be given to the birds which are likely to be seen at this time of year. Many of these are colorful warblers, songsters like those in the thrush family and many others. The goal is to prepare you for a birding walk which we will take at Valentine Farm Saturday May 4th at 8:00 a.m. The morning walk will provide field observations where you will practice the techniques from class. ...read more
