Welcome to Bangor Land Trust
Bangor Land Trust is a local non-profit organization that currently owns and conserves 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 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.

Grandparents Day &
Pedal the Penobscot Share Date
Sunday, September 7 is Grandparents Day and it's also the day Bangor Land Trust hosts its 8th annual Pedal the Penobscot Road Ride. This is a wonderful way to share a fun day with someone in your family.
Last year the above family representing three generations joined in the fun. Janice Cynewski, from Corinth, pedaled with her grandson Chris, her daughter Anne (both from Brewer), and her niece Louise (from Amesbury, Massachusetts). "It was a very wet, cold day" said Janice. Let's hope for better weather this year.
