In 2012, the Land Trust began a multi-year effort to help strengthen the protection of the Canadian Shore. A Cross Border Working Agreement was executed with The Nature Trust of New Brunswick to help facilitate future funding of conservation projects within the International corridor. The relationship with The Nature Trust led to collaborative work on the Department of Natural Resources Protected Natural Areas Program and the Crown Lands Exchange policy. Crown Lands comprise nearly all of the remaining undeveloped shorefront along the upper St. Croix including East Grand in the Province of New Brunswick.
he Woodie Wheaton Land Trust has successfully purchased the “Headwaters Forest,” a 919.5-acre tract of land in the town of Amity, Maine, which will enhance our land protection efforts in the Monument Brook region – the headwaters of East Grand Lake and the entire St. Croix River watershed.
