Land Trust 2019: The Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust’s Year in Review

By Angela Twitchell and Emily Swan

December 27, 2019

Between working with Maine Coast Heritage Trust to conserve Woodward Point Preserve, trail building on Tarbox Preserve, maintaining trails, building gardens at Perryman Village, and conserving additional properties, Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust has had an exciting year.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us to make it possible!

At this wonderful time of giving and thanks, we want to express our deep gratitude to the many hundreds of loyal supporters who made the work of the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust (BTLT) possible this year.

BTLT is a member-driven community organization that works collaboratively with municipalities and partner organizations to conserve the remarkable natural resources of Brunswick, Topsham, and Bowdoin.  Just as important as conserving these natural places is connecting the people of our region to them.   We made great strides in 2019 in both of these areas.

BTLT’s star achievement of 2019 was our collaboration with the Maine Coast Heritage Trust to conserve Woodward Point, nearly 90 acres of land with two miles of shorefront on Woodward Cove and the New Meadow River in Brunswick. This spectacular property was opened to the public in September and in just a few months has become an indispensable entrée to the waterfront for the people of our area, where public access to the coast is so limited.
