Donations allow KLT to add to Mount Pisgah Conservation Area

WINTHROP — The Kennebec Land Trust — with help from local donations — has raised $111,453 to buy an additional 139 acres at the Mount Pisgah Community Conservation Area.
The new parcels protect the northern ridgeline of Mount Pisgah, including impressive ledges and vernal pools.

KLT is designing phase two — slated to begin in summer 2019 — of a trail expansion on Mount Pisgah.
The Kennebec Land Trust (KLT) works cooperatively with landowners and communities to conserve the forests, shorelands, fields, and wildlife that define central Maine. KLT protects land permanently, offers opportunities for people to learn about and enjoy the natural world, and works with partners to support sustainable forestry and farming.
Established in 1988, KLT has partnered with landowners in 18 communities to conserve 6,200 acres on 70 properties through land donations, fee purchases, and conservation easements. For more information, call 207-377-2848.
