A Closer Look – July 2020

For more than 35 years, it’s been our mission to protect both important natural and economic resources—and often, maybe even surprisingly, those two goals are one in the same. From helping preserve our nation’s vast landscapes to supporting the small business that rely on them, we conserve critical resources in every state. Take a closer look.

12th Generation Forest in Maine Purchased for Conservation

Family history runs deep at the Chadbourne Tree Farm in western Maine. Passed down for 12 generations, Chadbourne is one of America’s oldest and highest yielding white pine forests. To protect this working forest landscape from fragmentation and development, we purchased 15,000 acres of the Tree Farm—an effort that will advance critical watershed protection and enhance recreational access for the region.
