Stockton Springs — Coastal Mountains Land Trust Executive Director Ian Stewart will speak at  Stockton Springs Community Library Wednesday, July 10, at 6:30 p.m. with Development Director Kathy Young. They will discuss current and future land conservation efforts with the community.

Currently, the land trust manages three preserves in the area, including Main Stream in Stockton Springs and Long Cove Headwaters in Searsport, both established in 2010, and Penobscot Shore in Prospect, which was established with a mile-long loop trail in 2017.

Coastal Mountains Land Trust is also currently looking into a new opportunity to protect Mt. Tuck in Stockton Springs.

Stewart will give a brief history of the three existing preserves as well as describing the conservation planning process the land trust uses to identify important natural areas for protection. Public access and recreation resources, also important elements in the planning process, will be described.
