Kennebec Land Trust
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 by citizens in 1988, KLT has partnered with landowners in 21 communities to protect more than 4,660acres on 59 properties through land donations, fee purchases, and conservation easements. We have constructed 37 miles of trails on KLT land, and developed informative brochures and maps of our properties that encourage visitors to learn about and enjoy Kennebec County's natural landscape.
KLT is also a founding partner, along with the Maine Forest Service, of the Kennebec Woodland Partnership, which promotes private and public woodland stewardship.
