Piscataquis Preserve Phase 2

Piscataquis Preserve Phase IIThe Northeast Wilderness Trust continues to work towards conservation of 2,300 acres—over 3.5 square miles—of beautiful forests, wetlands, and streams in Atkinson, Maine. Once the details of the purchase are worked out with the sellers, and the final $700,000 is raised for the project, these lands will be protected as Forever Wild and added to the 20,000-acre matrix of wildlands, timberlands, and farmland that are already protected in the area. We are thrilled to report that a $1 million North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) grant was awarded to this project earlier this year because of the land’s extraordinary ecological values and national importance to migratory waterfowl and other wildlife.
