The Maine Land Trust Network builds and sustains the quality and effectiveness of land trusts, as well as other organizations engaged in land conservation, drawing upon their collective expertise and resources to ensure responsible and successful conservation.
Established in 1995, the Maine Land Trust Network strengthens the land conservation community by serving as a central hub of information. It brings conservationists together to facilitate information exchange and collaboration. Additionally, the Network provides a broad array of programs, services, and resources that build the capacity and sustainability of land conservation organizations throughout the state.
A program of Maine Coast Heritage Trust, the Maine Land Trust Network is led by a Steering Committee representing up to 25 member land trusts. A number of workgroups engage in and support the efforts of the Steering Committee.
