"Through the support of thousands of people, Maine Coast Heritage Trust works from Lubec to Kittery to protect and care for Maine’s unspoiled, threatened coastal land—giving the public permanent access to the special places and experiences only found here.

Maine Coast Heritage Trust was founded in 1970 to protect the very best of the Maine coast, and they’ve come a long way in the last 50 years, conserving more than 150,000 acres and creating more than 100 public preserves open to all.

Today, they work out of four different offices and in all seven coastal counties to protect land, care for the land, connect the public to the coast, and support other Maine land trusts."
