We promote the protection, preservation and conservation of the land and water of the Chiputneticook Lakes region of eastern Maine and western New Brunswick, Canada for the benefit of present and future generations.
New Land Acquisition
In November of 2020, the Woodie Wheaton Land Trust successfully purchased a 919.5-acre parcel in the headwaters of East Grand Lake and the St. Croix River watershed. This new parcel, called the Headwaters Forest, has many benefits. It abuts one of our existing parcels, the Greenleaf Parcel, and improves traditional public access and uses by having Route 1 frontage. It also allows WWLT to protect the streams that feed into the Chiputneticook Lakes, essential ecosystems, and the valuable habitats of the Native Brook Trout and White-tailed Deer. We are very excited to start our stewardship work on this new property this summer.
The Headwaters Forest and the Greenleaf parcel can be accessed using the Champion Road. This road is located off Route 1 and just south of the Estabrook Road.
