Hopeful, creative, effective action for the wild…

The forests and wildlife of the northeastern United States have undergone a dramatic resurgence during the past century. While cause for hope, this remarkable recovery is incomplete. Our region’s natural heritage is increasingly threatened by development, pollution, forest fragmentation, climate change, and unstable ownership. The need to permanently protect wild lands and waters has never been greater. The Northeast Wilderness Trust is meeting this challenge, working with private landowners and other partners to save wildlife habitat from the Adirondacks to Maine. The Trust is the only regional land trust focused exclusively on preserving wilderness areas—places where nature directs the ebb and flow of life. Since its founding in 2002, the Trust has conserved more than 24,000 acres in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, and Connecticut. Continuing this record of success depends on you—please join us!
