Coastal Mountains Land Trust actively works to conserve land for the benefit of nature and the people who live in or visit the fifteen towns we serve: Rockport, Camden, Hope, Lincolnville, Northport, Belmont, Belfast, Swanville, Brooks, Knox, Waldo, Searsport, Stockton Springs, and Prospect.

Our priorities are conserving lands that support and contain:

  • Key wildlife habitat supporting biological diversity
  • Rivers, lakes, wetlands, and the bay
  • Working farms and forests that support our community
  • Scenic landscapes essential to our sense of place
  • Public access to natural areas for hiking, paddling, swimming, hunting, winter recreation, mountain biking and other forms of outdoor enjoyment
  • Trails and connectivity between people and nature
  • Opportunities for building community
  • Space for outdoor learning
