Cathance River Farm

Watershed Protection

Cathance River Farm is an 85-acre easement property located on Rt. 201 in Topsham. It is part of a string of Trust properties along the eastern shore of the Cathance River and hosts 3,350 feet of river frontage.  This former farmland includes wetlands, wet meadows, and fields. Protecting the upper watershed of the Cathance River is key to maintaining water quality in both the river and Merrymeeting Bay, its destination.

There is potential for limited access to this property’s shoreland in the future if a trail along the eastern shore of the Cathance River becomes feasible.
