Dedicated to the conservation and preservation of native ecosystems, farm and forest lands, watersheds,
and scenic landscapes for the benefit of wild and human communities in western Maine.
Programs & Events
From monthly walks to seasonal programs such as paddling and ski clinics, Western Foothills Land Trust offers opportunities for all ages and abilities. We also host annual community events such as the Norway Snowshoe Festival in February and the Norway Triathlon in July on beautiful Lake Penneseewassee.
Protected Lands & Trails
Western Foothills Land Trust protects farmlands, wetlands, forestlands, unique natural resources, and open space in the greater Oxford Hills area of Western Maine. The Trust also holds conservation easements on privately owned lands and owns working forest lands and preserves in the region.
To date, our lands contain over 32 miles of recreational trails, 7 of which are groomed for Nordic skiing in the winter.
