Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust is a local land trust, serving the communities of Brunswick, Topsham, and Bowdoin and partnering on diverse projects in and around the southern Midcoast Maine region.

We are a nonprofit that conserves land valued by our communities for its ecological, habitat, scenic, agricultural, and other values. We own some properties and hold conservation easements – where the land stays in private ownership – on others. We are the permanent stewards of these lands, ensuring their conservation values remain intact over time. We focus on:

We work closely with an array of public and private organizations, towns, private businesses, and landowners to ensure that our communities accommodate both conserved lands and development in suitable areas.

Our passion is connecting people to land and we try to provide many different ways for people to engage with the natural world. Through our trails, Saturday Farmers’ Market, Tom Settlemire Community Garden, Young Explorers program, and other activities, we get people outdoors with their neighbors – human and wild – to forge lifelong relationships. We believe that when a community is deeply connected to its land and natural resource base, it will prosper on many levels.
