Sebasticook Regional Land Trust has its roots in the Friends of Unity Wetlands (FUW), a regional land trust that formed in 2004 to conserve the rich wild and working landscape of a nine-town complex in Central Maine. With the support of our members and community, the FUW achieved great success in its first five years, approaching 2,000 acres of permanently conserved farm, forest and wild lands, more than 300 participants in its children and family programs, and more than four miles of public access trails constructed and maintained.
Recognizing that land use within the Sebasticook River watershed impacts the conservation values around which the FUW was organized, in October 2009 we expanded our service region and changed our name to the Sebasticook Regional Land Trust. Conservation planning is now under way for the full Sebasticook River Watershed, which extends into 43 towns and five counties. We work primarily with farmers, woodlot owners and other private landowners who want to see their land protected for future farming, woodlot management and conservation.
