The Maine Appalachian Trail Land Trust is pleased to announce that we have received a grant of $2500 from the Maine Community Foundation’s Fund for Maine Land Conservation. These funds will go towards GIS mapping technology in connection with our Appalachian Trail Maine: Next Century program. The project will involve an inventory of the A.T. landscape in Maine based on categories such as:
- Scenery Along the Treadway
- Views Beyond the Corridor
- American Heritage
- Natural Resource Quality and Ecological Connectivity
- Visitor Experience
We are excited to have undertaken this project with the assistance of the National Park Service and Appalachian Trail Conservancy, and with local community partners in towns up and down the Appalachian Trail in Maine. Our work depends on our local partners and supporters – Maine Community Foundation is one of them.
Thanks for all you do MCF!
