Last week, Presumpscot Regional Land Trust (PRLT) hosted a tour of legislators at Randall Orchards to showcase our nearly 500-acre agricultural conservation easement; making Randall Orchards one of the largest forever farms in the Greater Portland Area.
The Randall Orchards Conservation Project and the Black Brook Preserve in Windham (the flagship project that started Windham Land Trust) were possible due to the Land for Maine’s Future Program.
Thirty years ago, Maine voters overwhelmingly approved a bond to purchase lands of significance for recreation and conservation. Since then, Land for Maine’s Future Program has helped to protect more than 600,000 acres of land in Maine for us — forever. PRLT expects that in the coming years there will be more significant land protection projects in our region that will be possible with support from the Land for Maine’s Future Program.
The PRLT is constantly assessing new prospective land protection projects in our region and this is only possible due to member support. We want to take a minute now to thank each of you who are a member of our land trust, for supporting land protection for wildlife and the community.
