Act

  • If you live in Maine, contact your state elected officials about supporting Land For Maine’s Future. Land For Maine’s future funds were used to help protect Hacker’s Hill Preserve, Pleasant Mountain Preserve, Sebago Headwaters Preserve, Crooked River Forest, and Raymond Community Forest. The program has not been funded since 2012. Learn more about how LMF impacts our work.
  • Go for a walk with gloves and a bag & pick up any trash you see. Be sure to wear a bright color or a safety vest, and be mindful of sharp objects. Safety first, always!
  •  Spend time outdoors. Share your experience with your friends on social media. Tag the land trust or land steward that helps you access your special place.
  • Survey and remove invasive plants from your property.
  • Learn something new about the nature nearby.
