Cousins River Fields and Marsh

Maine Coast Heritage Trust, Royal River Conservation Trust (RRCT), and Freeport Conservation Trust (FCT) worked together through 2020 and 2021 to fundraise for a keystone parcel of the Cousins River marsh system, located in Yarmouth at the intersection of Granite Street and Old County Road. Maine Coast Heritage Trust will own and manage this new preserve, and anticipate the purchase of the land being completed by the end of 2022. By ensuring this shoreline remains undeveloped, it will accommodate the movement of the marsh as sea level rises. Thanks to the hard work of all three organizations and the generous support of our members and donors, this important habitat will be stay intact in the decades to come!
