Conserving Land in the MDI Region
Through a narrated slideshow, Misha Mytar will give an overview of Maine Coast Heritage Trust’s conservation lands in the MDI region. She will discuss recent accomplishments, current projects, and future plans for land conservation in this region. Misha is MCHT’s Project Manager for MDI – she works with landowners and partners on land protection and community planning projects.
MCHT is a statewide conservation organization protecting lands and islands and connecting people to the coast. Through the generosity of many, MCHT has conserved more than 150,000 acres and 300 islands on the Maine coast and created more than 100 preserves and 80 miles of trails—all free and open to the public. MCHT got its start on MDI, where it continues to serve as the local land trust, working with Acadia National Park, local landowners, and other partners to protect the lands that define the character of MDI. MCHT provides conservation advisory services free of charge to landowners, local land trusts and state and community officials. A membership organization, MCHT welcomes your support and involvement.
