The Medomak Valley and the patterns of life within it have been
shaped by the river, creating a rich patchwork of forests, ponds,
farmlands, blueberry fields, and small villages and towns. This
extraordinary landscape defines the character of our community and
supports our rural way of life.
The fate of this resource is in our hands. Until recently, our
community has been relatively insulated from the rapid development
sweeping Maine's coast. We have a brief window of opportunity to
protect our fields and woodlands, unobstructed panoramic views from
ridges and the chance to rake blueberries, drink clean water and
fish in clear ponds.
Since 1991, the Medomak Valley Land Trust has worked to achieve
permanent conservation of these lands and their scenic and natural
resources. We use a variety of conservation options to achieve this
In each case MVLT works voluntarily and confidentially with landowners
to find an option that best meets their needs and the conservation
goals of the land trust.
