Chebeague & Cumberland Land Trust

Our purpose is to preserve and protect the intrinsic values and public benefits of the natural resources in the Towns of Chebeague and Cumberland - mainland, island and contiguous Casco Bay - and to be responsible stewards in perpetuity for those resources in our trust.

Founded in 1987, the Trust was originally named the Cumberland Mainland & Islands Trust. In 2007, the island of Chebeague seceded from Cumberland and the Trust bylaws were re-written to reflect its continued strong partnership with Chebeague and their new independence as their own town.

The Trust has worked to protect vital natural resources in Cumberland and Chebeague including shoreline, nesting islands, wildlife habitat, wetlands, woodlands, and farmland. To date, the Trust has under its protection eighteen properties - nine on the mainland and nine on Casco Bay.

Strong membership and assets allow the Trust to act quickly when valuable conservation opportunities arise. Each member is important and adds to the success of our efforts.

Members also have the opportunity to become more involved in activities that may interest them such as: land stewardship, membership drives, trail building and maintenance, newsletter, and Summer Casco Bay cruise.
