Habitat Protection

Active Agriculture

This 19-acre easement protects riparian and upland habitat along the Cathance River, adding to an extensive network of conservation properties protecting water quality and ecological values in the river and Merrymeeting Bay which lies downstream. Conservation of the riparian area also ensures scenic views for canoers and kayakers on the river. The easement allows for continued farming of a small field in the upland area, contributing to continuation of agriculture in the region.
