Managing Woodlands for Wildlife at  Vassalboro Wildlife Habitat

KLT in the News

...City councilors voted unanimously Thursday to endorse the acquisition of the property, contingent on an agreement being struck with the land trust, and authorized City Manager William Bridgeo to act as a co-applicant with the land trust to seek Land for Maine’s Future grant funds to help make the purchase...

...Councilors also are scheduled to consider approving a proposal expected to result in the city ending up with the 164-acre Howard Hill property, which forms a wooded backdrop behind the State House...

Howard Hill is a unique and spectacular conservation project. It will be the dollop of ice cream on top of our state dessert, the blueberry pie. Towering over the Capitol, Howard Hill will forever emphasize that Maine is a state where the people value conservation and their very best and special places.
