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.


Spring Stewardship Days

Join us this May 14-17 to improve the trails!

Please check out our volunteer page to see our great upcoming volunteer opportunities! We are eager to spruce up the trails after a long winter, and we invite you to join us, meet other great volunteers, and enjoy our preserves while helping make them even more awesome. This time we even have evening (5-7pm) volunteer events!

Phippsburg Land Trust is a volunteer-driven organization. We can’t do it without you! 

Spread the word, read our Volunteer Page, and sign up for a session (or two!). 
Contact Cheri at cbrunault@kennebecestuary.org or call 978-476-6457. 

(Can’t volunteer this time? Please consider becoming a member to support our work.)

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.
