Orbeton Stream Article from A.T. Journeys

The Orbeton Stream parcel in the valley below Saddleback Mountain.

There’s always a backstory when important lands are conserved, and the Orbeton Stream parcel is no exception.  Sometimes that story is straightforward and the path is clear – the story is easy to tell.  Sometimes the route is long and winding and full of ups and downs, but this is usually a more interesting tale.  This project leans towards the latter, but you can read for yourself how these lands came to be protected.  Click below to read a story by Maine A.T. Land Trust President Bill Plouffe and ATC Maine Conservation Resources Manager Claire Polfus about the genesis of the Orbeton Stream project.
