The Maine Appalachian Trail Land Trust is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a grant of $25,000 for the Appalachian Trail Maine: Next Century program from the Quimby Family Foundation. These funds will help advance this program in all three facets: Next Century Priorities, Next Century Land Protection and Next Century Outreach. Currently, we are working on our GIS mapping for the land trust’s Land Acquisition Priorities 2016 document and increasing outreach efforts as we approach the National Park Service 100th Anniversary.
The Maine A.T. Land Trust would like to thank the Quimby Family Foundation for providing this much-needed funding for an important program for the future of A.T. conservation in Maine. With it, we hope to advance the protection of the Appalachian Trail landscape, increase opportunities for recreation in Maine and provide a framework for economic activity based on both activities.
