In recent years, Cathance River Education Alliance (CREA) and Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust (BTLT) explored ways to work together more closely with the goal of strengthening both organizations and increasing our effectiveness. We are pleased to report that the boards and memberships of both organizations voted to recommend joining forces to work together as a single organization, effective July 1, 2023.

We are confident that as a unified organization, we are stronger and can better meet the needs of the community. Both organizations formed around a strong commitment to the natural world. BTLT was created to protect valued local landscapes and resources; CREA was launched to educate people about those landscapes and resources. Our missions and programs are complementary — education about the natural world ensures that the next generation will understand, value, and actively safeguard the environment.
