Habitat Protection

Watershed Protection

This 13-acre fee property owned by the Land Trust, was donated by the Town of Topsham, and contains about 1,500 feet of frontage on the Cathance River. It adds to an extensive network of conservation properties protecting water quality in the river and Merrymeeting Bay which lies downstream, as well as habitat, scenic views, and ecological values.

Adjacent to a 2003 subdivision, upland areas of the property provide a valuable buffer between developed areas and five acres of high value freshwater marsh along the river. The property has informal trails used by neighborhood residents.
