About The Land Trust
Western Foothills Land Trust was founded in 1987 by citizens committed to land and natural resource protection in the greater Oxford Hills area of Western Maine.
Western Foothills Land Trust is a member of Maine Land Trust Network and the national Land Trust Alliance. As a member of the extensive network of land trusts in Maine, Western Foothills Land Trust protects land by advocating locally for open space and resource protection, stewarding lands held in fee-ownership, and assisting landowners as a legal holder of donated or purchased conservation easements.
"Once you have preserved your property, you look at it in a different way...
you take the long view of management and treat your land in a sustainable way that will preserve it.
You become more of a husband to your land." —Robert Van Nest
