The Kennebec Estuary Land Trust is committed to conserving land and wildlife habitat of the Lower Kennebec and Sheepscot River estuaries. We are a community based membership organization serving the towns of Arrowsic, Bath, Bowdoinham, Dresden, West Bath, Georgetown, Westport Island and Woolwich.
Our Board of Directors is drawn from the communities we serve.
In addition to our direct conservation work, we participate in fruitful collaborations with state and federal agencies and private conservation organizations under the umbrella of the Maine Wetlands Protection Coalition. This has resulted in the protection of over 18,000 acres of critical wetland habitat.
Through mechanisms such as conservation easements, property donation and outright purchase, KELT is committed to identifying and protecting land in our region with ecological, agricultural, scenic, cultural or historic significance and providing access to the properties we own for non-motorized low impact recreation.
Summer Land Steward
June 2017 - August 2017
“This internship involved working with multiple land trusts in the area, KELT, BTLT, PLT, and the Nature Conservancy, and I appreciated getting to see what land trust work looks like for different organizations as well as having the opportunity to network.”
