Maine Cabin Masters Watch Party

Maine Cabin Masters Watch Party

This past fall, KLT renovated two historic cabins at the Trust’s Wakefield Wildlife Sanctuary in West Gardiner. We are thrilled to announce that we were selected by and contracted with Maine Cabin Masters for the renovations. Kennebec Land Trust’s Wakefield Wildlife Sanctuary and our newly restored cabins will be featured on an episode of Cabin Masters on the DIY Channel, airing on February 25. 

 When landowner Kendra Wakefield Shaw donated her 115-acre family property on Cobbossee Stream to KLT, the bequest included a small fund for the maintenance of her family’s 100 year old cabins. KLT’s cabins will be available to the general public as rentals, with a discount for KLT members. The cabins will also be used for KLT programming including future workshops with guest artists and writers. Our hope is that income from the cabin rentals will support future stewardship of the Wakefield Wildlife Sanctuary and cabin maintenance.

Please join us to celebrate Kendra's legacy and KLT's new cabins on Monday, February 25 at The Depot Pub in Gardiner. The episode airs at 9 PM. We hope you can be there to see our work featured on television!

Tenth Annual Curtis Winter Fun Day

Join the Kennebec Land Trust for a morning of winter fun at the Curtis Homestead Conservation Area in Leeds, the childhood home of former Maine Governor Kenneth M. Curtis, Rebecca Curtis Meredith, and Joyce Curtis.

Bring your cross-country skis or snowshoes and spend the afternoon exploring this wonderful 360-acre conservation property!

If the snow is right, we’d love to build a community of snowmen! Bring whatever biodegradable accessories you’d like to use.

Hot chocolate, hot dogs, and s’mores will be served around a bonfire in the field. We’ll have a few pairs of children and adult Winthrop Plays Outside snowshoes from the Bailey Public Library in Winthrop for use. First come, first served.
