Mt. Tuck Campaign

Since securing a 99-acre summit parcel of Mt. Tuck in June of 2019, Coastal Mountains Land Trust has continued to actively work in Prospect and Stockton Springs to explore additional conservation opportunities on and around this mountain to connect together the more than 1,150 acres currently conserved in this area.

The Vision

Coastal Mountains Land Trust, a nonprofit land conservation organization, is working to acquire and create the Mt. Tuck Preserve, in Stockton Springs.

 

Conservation will protect this unique place threatened by development, while consolidating a vital area of open space, wildlife habitat, and scenic beauty at the head of Penobscot Bay.

 

We need to raise $200,000 through grants and    private donations by the end of 2021 to purchase this property and create a four-mile trail loop.

 

Your assistance as we protect and make this  special place available for public recreation, is critical and we welcome your generous support.
