Phippsburg Land Trust Mission
The Phippsburg Land Trust preserves, protects and stewards special wild and natural places in Phippsburg for the benefit and education of our children, grandchildren and future generations.
Welcome to Winter!
Don’t let the cold temperatures get you down. Head out on a Phippsburg Land Trust preserve to appreciate the serene scenes of the winter season! When the snow gets deep, remember that many of our preserves have great snowshoeing opportunities. Check out more about our lands here: http://phippsburglandtrust.org/visit-the-land/.
Dogs are Welcome on Land Trust Properties
We get this question periodically, so to be clear about our policy – dogs are allowed on lands owned by the Phippsburg Land Trust. In accordance with Maine state statutes, and Phippsburg ordinances, all dogs must be under the control of their owners at all times. As with anything else, please use common sense: do not allow your dog to threaten or interfere with wildlife, and remember that dog owners share our preserves with other walkers, who may feel threatened by your dog’s enthusiasm, no matter how well-intentioned. Please keep your dog nearby, so that you are able to ensure others (wildlife, humans, or other pets) are not harmed. We also ask that you “carry out” any waste, especially when near a water body, including bogs, streams or vernal pools. Finally, be sure your pet wears orange during hunting seasons.
Be aware that for lands where the Land Trust holds an easement, landowner policies may differ. Some easements, such as Mary’s Woods, involve passing through a landowner’s yard and by their home. To preserve the privilege of bringing your pet to these lands, be sure your dog is a well-behaved guest.
Paying Our Share — Thanks to Member Support
The Phippsburg Land Trust makes an annual Payment In Lieu Of Taxes (usually called a PILOT) to the Town of Phippsburg for the lands we own.
We appreciate your support…so that we can show our support of our community.
