The Boothbay Region Land Trust seeks to conserve for the public benefit the natural habitat, scenic beauty and working land of the Boothbay Region.
BRLT conserves land through partnerships with local landowners, neighboring land trusts, and towns. BRLT owns much of the land it protects but it also utilizes important conservation tools such as conservation easements to protect land in perpetuity.

BRLT also encourages land owners to steward their land wisely.
What will the Boothbay region look like 25, 50 or 100 years hence? BRLT is working hard to ensure the region will still provide wildlife habitat, space for children to play and explore, hiking trails for residents and visitors and access to working waterfront. Future generations deserve the legacy of the natural beauty that makes our peninsula so special. As they say about land: they're not making any more of it.

As part of its mission, BRLT provides and promotes education about wildlife, ecology, conservation and local history. BRLT achieves this through offering conservation focused events and activities throughout the year including guided hikes, kayak trips, boat trips and more. BRLT also collaborates with the Boothbay Region Elementary School each year to implement a multi-disciplinary, environmental education 5th grade program or 'The Osprey Program'. After visiting BRLT preserves, The Osprey Program culminates in a trip to Damariscove Island. In order to raise the critical funds necessary to carry out the mission, BRLT also hosts several fundraising events throughout the year.
BRLT hopes to increase the number of people who support conservation and appreciate the economic, historical, cultural and ecological values of conservation. With over 30 miles of hiking trails and events on BRLT preserves throughout the years, BRLT invites the public to witness the value of conservation.
