"Lands in Trust"

"Land trusts have positively impacted my life for many years. Yet I’ve lacked a clear understanding of the important role they play in Maine and the breadth of benefits they provide. A recent accidental encounter has changed that."

Thanks, Ron, for your enthusiasm about our work and for helping spread the word about "Lands in Trust".

March 22: Maine Maple Sunday

Trees provide us so much: clean air, clean water, habitat and food for wildlife, carbon storage, and maybe sweetest of all the only ingredient in delicious Maine Maple Syrup. Learn all about the work that goes into making Maple Syrup on Maine Maple Sunday, set for March 22nd! Many local syrup producers will open their doors for this long-standing tradition.

Home is where the woods are.

Loon Echo Land Trust is a community-supported nonprofit. You can make sure more forests are accessible for you and your family, local critters have forever homes, and our earth is more resilient to climate change. Donate today.
