The Trust for Public Land
5,774 acres protected

Trust for Public Land used Conservation Alliance funding to support its White Mountains to Moosehead Lake Initiative to permanently protect 67,900 acres of woods, waters, and mountains in Maine and New Hampshire’s “Great White Moose”, one of the Northeast’s largest natural landscapes. TPL reports they have secured a conservation easement for Orbeton Stream, a 5,774-acre property in Franklin County, Maine. This habitat contains federally endangered Atlantic Salmon and creates a 77,000-acre block of protected land in the High Peaks.
