Business Partnerships

Join business leaders who are investing in the quality of life here in the Royal River Watershed.  Forests, farms, preserves, trails, fishing, hunting, water access, and parks create an environment to attract businesses, residents, employees, and visitors. Our business members and sponsors are an integral part of Royal River Conservation Trust, enabling us to preserve land, build trails and create public access.

Many local businesses already generously support our work as conservation leaders.  To become an RRCT Business Partner, please donate online, send a donation by mail, or contact Executive Director Alan Stearns or Development Coordinator Carrie Ridgway 

We offer different benefits for different levels of partnership, aiming for annual reliable support at a level that is comfortable for you.

We also have strong relationships with many businesses who offer us pro-bono or in-kind goods or services, including Maple’s bakery, Allagash Brewing Company, Green Bee Drinks, and a dozen local landscape architects, lawyers, financial advisors, restaurants, print shops, construction companies, and other businesses and professionals who pitch in during our projects or events.
