Coastal Mountains Land Trust is a membership-based organization working to conserve land to benefit the natural and human communities of the western Penobscot Bay region. They have permanently protected almost 8000 acres since their program began in 1986. Our conservation lands protect scenic landscapes, wildlife habitats, important agricultural, forest and water resources, and provide opportunities for outdoor recreation. We work cooperatively with landowners who recognize the special features of their properties and are committed to conserving them with conservation easements. We also own preserves that provide the public with beautiful, natural places to enjoy.
