News & Events
History of the Hathaway Island Acquisition
For fishermen launching at the Lower Landing, most only notice the north end of the island on the right when motoring out of the basin, and few will remember the private camps on the south end.
History of the Dri-Ki Point Project
In early 2014, WWLT responded to a quickly developing (and probably one-time) opportunity to purchase Dri-Ki Point on Spednic Lake. It's a beautiful parcel with 1041 feet of frontage jutting northward into Spednic’s midsection, smack in the middle of a vast conserved landscape. This small private parcel, unless conserved, would experience increased development pressure as its value became enhanced by the surrounding conservation land.

East Grand Highlands Trail: A Community Hiking Project
Chiputneticook, the Passamaquoddy name for our part of the St. Croix system, literally means “lakes among high hills.” It is an area of profound beauty and topographical interest. While much of the area’s natural beauty is accessible from the water, hiking trails can provide those on foot with an opportunity to experience some of this country.
Honoring the Chiputneticook Circle
