Harpswell Heritage Land Trust

The Harpswell Heritage Land Trust exists to preserve the natural and cultural resources of Harpswell; to educate and promote the study and understanding of local natural, architectural and cultural resources; to use all resources of the Trust for the benefits of the inhabitants of the Harpswell region; and to cooperate with other organizations dedicated to the achievement of the same purposes.

As of the end of 2007, the Trust had conserved 256 acres of lands through its 11 preserves—lands the Trust owns—and 956 acres through its 18 conservation easements on privately owned lands.  The Trust holds preservation easements on five historic structures. The Trust also sponsors a variety of educational and recreational events for the community, runs an annual Nature Day Camp for kids, and a Community Gardens Program.

Operating with a volunteer Board of Trustees and a part-time Executive Director and supported by membership contributions and volunteers, the Trust continues to pursue new projects designed to protect Harpswell's special places and to provide public access to Harpswell's natural world.
