Androscoggin Land Trust Nearly 1250 acres of forested land along the Androscoggin River in Canton and Jay are now permanently conserved for public benefit! After working on the project for more than three years, Androscoggin Land Trust recently purchased the land from Verso Paper Corp. thanks to the generous funding from Land for Maine’s Future, Maine Natural Resource Conservation Program and numerous private foundations. ALT commends Verso for its vision and commitment to the longterm conservation of this land. Now that ALT owns these special lands we are reaching out to the local communities for input as we steward these properties in perpetuity as community forests. If you have an interest in being involved in this process or becoming a supporter of the Androscoggin Land Trust, please contact us at 207-782-2302 or info@androscogginlandtrust.org
