It’s not about the Land Trust. It’s about the people! That’s how we save land forever. Our members, landowners, and volunteers make conservation happen. Here’s how.


If you want to save land in the Midcoast area, becoming a member is a direct route. Your membership gifts help us buy land for protection, place conservation easements on private lands, and care for the thousands of acres under our stewardship commitment.

Members receive our print newsletter, Landscapes, three times a year, and special invitations to member only events.


If you own property in the Midcoast region, you can play a vital role in conservation. One of the most important tools for land and water protection – called a conservation easement – allows private landowners to secure the future of their lands while retaining ownership. There are many other tools for protecting land and advancing the conservation mission.


Come be a volunteer. We have over 13,000 acres under protection, 37 preserves, of which 28 have developed trails and public access. Help us maintain them!

You can volunteer in other ways, too. SEE SOME VOLUNTEER STORIES.
