About Us

Who We Are:

We are a nationally accredited nonprofit, membership-based land conservation organization founded in 1985 by residents of the Blue Hill Peninsula in coastal Maine.

We work to conserve the unique landscape of our peninsula: pristine shores, blueberry-covered hills, working farms, wetlands, forests, ponds, and breathtaking views. To date, we have protected over 7,000 acres for future generations.

In true New England fashion, we are taking private action for the public good, to help ensure that increasing development pressure does not destroy the character of this remarkable place. Our work is voluntary and it is forever.

Our Mission:

To conserve in perpetuity land and water resources that support the long-term health and well-being of the natural and human communities on the Blue Hill Peninsula.



Please contact the Trust office if you are interested in participating as a member, volunteer, or board member.
