Places We Protect
Northeast Wilderness Trust protects and stewards nearly 25,000 acres of wilderness in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, and Connecticut. These natural areas permanently secure wildlife habitat and help counter climate change by storing carbon. In some cases the Trust’s protected properties also support scientific research, environmental education, and quiet recreation. Most importantly, these wild places have been conserved to simply be; in addition to their many benefits to human communities, they have their own intrinsic value. Conservation partners on protected properties include private individuals and families, schools and universities, foundations and research organizations, and other land trusts.
