Vinalhaven Land Trust

(207) 863-2543 ||

Vinalhaven Land Trust was incorporated in 1986, near the beginning of the land trust movement in downeast Maine. Since then, VLT has succeeded in conserving many “whole places” that have significant natural features and little or no development. Working with landowners and partner groups, Vinalhaven Land Trust has helped to preserve:

  • 700 acres along the tranquil Perry Creek inlet
  • 90 contiguous acres and 1.5 miles of unbroken shoreline around Whitmore Pond at the head of Crockett Cove, a rare salt marsh habitat with abundant wildlife
  • Starboard Rock
  • four of the islands and seabird nesting colonies in the Brimstone archipelago
  • in partnership with Maine Coast Heritage Trust and landowners, 745 acres of highly scenic and ecologically rich land around the Basin, a 360 acre tidal embayment
  • four undeveloped islands in Seal Bay, an inlet renowned for its wild beauty
  • eleven preserves with 15 miles of diverse hiking trails for all abilities
  • important acreage in the town watershed
  • Tip Toe Mountain, a beloved peak overlooking the Fox Islands Thorofare and beyond
  • There were no results found.
