Welcome to Bangor Land Trust
Bangor Land Trust is a local non-profit organization that currently owns and conserves over 700 acres of land with public access in the Bangor area. Our mission is to protect for public benefit land and water in the Bangor region that have special ecological, natural, scenic, agricultural, or recreational significance; increase public understanding of the value of land and water conservation. Founded in 2001, BLT is a local non-profit organization supported by members and fundraising events.
In addition to our annual Pedal the Penobscot Road Ride, Bangor Land Trust hosts monthly community events on its preserves including a variety of nature walks and talks that are fun for the whole family.
Check our Calendar of Events on a regular basis as fluctuations occur. Sometimes events get added without too much lead time and other events are listed but don't have all the details. As an event date approaches you'll find more complete details and you'll often find interesting information in the Kids' Corner section of our site - for kids of all ages.
Ed Grew from Orono pointed out that in BLT’s spring newsletter, we incorrectly identified the photo on page 4. The photo is of a viceroy butterfly, not a monarch. They closely resemble each other but the viceroy is recognized by the presence of a black post-median band on the hind
wing. This black line parallel to the rear edge of the wing is absent in monarchs. He shared these two monarch photos to compare. Thanks for the lesson, Ed!
