Bangor Land Trust is a nonprofit organization that has conserved over 800 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; and to increase public understanding of the value of land and water conservation. Founded in 2001, BLT is supported by members and fundraising events.
In addition to the 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, due to peak timing for spotlight species (for example, Lady's Slippers blooming and Woodcock flying).
You'll find member photos and Bangor area wildlife information in The More You Know section of our site.
