Summer 2021 RRCT celebrates:

  • The Thoit’s Branch Headwaters Preserve: RRCT’s preserve planned for 2021: We’re raising $40,000 to create the 75-acre preserve off Upper Minot Road in Pownal with a focus on habitat, ecology, and traditional uses for land that The Nature Conservancy has identified as high priority for climate resilience.
  • The Cousins River Marsh and Fields Preserve: Working with Maine Coast Heritage Trust and Freeport Conservation Trust, RRCT is raising funds to conserve 82 acres on the Cousins River in Yarmouth following a successful effort to conserve an adjacent parcel in Freeport in 2020.
  •  The Expanded Intervale Preserve (Phase II Campaign to Build Lower Village Trails): RRCT closed on 174.3 acres of land in New Gloucester on July 16, 2021. This land includes some of the best ecology in the Royal River watershed and pivotal parcels for a village trail network on the historic Interurban railway. Phase II RRCT fundraising will continue for trail construction, environmental restoration and historic interpretation.
