Loon Echo Land Trust and The Trust for Public Land are working in partnership with the community of Sebago, Maine to acquire and create Tiger Hill Community Forest. Together we can preserve all that makes Maine special; we can safeguard this diverse, wild landscape and ensure its protection for generations to come.
Protect a Critical Drinking Water Source – This project will protect the water quality of Sebago lake, the drinking water source for over one sixth of Maine residents and many visitors.
Support Wildlife and Biodiversity – This project will protect a cold water fishery that supports Sebago Lake’s landlocked salmon and native brook trout populations.
Support the Local Economy – This community forest will help Sebago maintain its sense of place as a tourism destination and create more recreational opportunities.
Strengthen the Social Fabric of Community – This project will spark community engagement as part of the planning process and provide a physical gathering place in the town of Sebago.
