Land Trust Support Programs
Maintaining our trails throughout the seasons requires a strong corps of stewardship volunteers coordinated by our stewardship staff, as well as significant financial resources. For an annual $1,000 donation, businesses or individuals may adopt a trail on one of our preserves, thereby directly contributing to the stewardship of that preserve. Your sponsorship is recognized on a sign at the trailhead kiosk and through other publicity. Some high visibility trails in need of sponsors include the Beech Hill Preserve Woods Trail, the Fernalds Neck Preserve Trail, the Hatchet Mountain Preserve Trail, the Ducktrap River Preserve Trail, and the Stover Preserve Trail. Please contact our Development Director at (207) 236-7091 or [email protected] for more information.

Looking for a way to honor someone special in your life for that milestone birthday or with a unique memorial? We offer two opportunities to pay tribute to family, friends, or yourself, or to advertise your business, while also sustaining our conservation work:
- For a one-time donation of $3,000 we'll install a permanent bronze plaque on the trailhead kiosk of your choice, with only one plaque allowed per kiosk. Let other hikers know you care!
- A one-time donation of $4,000 provides for a rustic stone bench engraved with a short line of text to be sited at a carefully chosen location on one of our preserves. To maintain the natural setting and wild flavor of our preserves, only a few of these benches will be installed overall and are not available on every preserve. This is an ideal way to affirm a personal connection to a special place in a way that helps us protect more places that touch your heart in the western Penobscot Bay region.
Please contact our Development Director at (207) 236-7091 or [email protected] for more information.
- Caffeine addicts take note! Green Tree Coffee & Tea offers 1-lb. bags of Rainforest Alliance coffees via its website www.greentreecoffee.com (look under Whole Bean Products) or at its retail outlet on Route One in Lincolnville Beach. Green Tree will donate to us $1.00 for each bag sold of their five special "Coastal Maine Blends." They also offer beautiful, two-bag gift boxes. You can also purchase their coffee at The Bagel Cafe, a business member located at 25 Mechanic St. in downtown Camden.
- Enjoy the luxury of a Land & Sea specialty massage at Sanctuary Day Spa, 15 Elm St., Camden. Sanctuary donates 10% of all proceeds from this treatment to the Land Trust, so you can pamper yourself and feel good in more ways than one! Our development director highly recommends it.
- Buy this 17" x 22" limited edition, giclee print "Blueberry Barren" by nature photographer Brian Willson from MaineSeasons.com, and 25% of the purchase price will be donated to the Land Trust!
