The Maine Appalachian Trail Land Trust is pleased to announce that plans are in the works to update and revised the groundbreaking ecological report on Maine’s High Peaks which was first issued in 2007. The report has guided conservation efforts along Maine’s Appalachian Trail for over a decade and with recent and upcoming land protection projects, the time has come to evaluate the status of the Appalachian Trail landscape in Maine. Old threats have waned but new threats have emerged to threaten the integrity of the A.T. Outdoor recreation and the economic impact it can have, along with climate change mitigation, destination development and health/wellness issue have all emerged since the initial publication of the report.
We will have further updates on when the study will be re-released! Stay tuned.
