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; 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.
In the past we’ve scheduled winter events but have had to cancel or reschedule due to weather or ground conditions. We would really like to get together for a couple of outings and think the best way to proceed is to send out emails and post on Facebook and our web site when conditions are just right.
A Snowshoe & Hot Cocoa outing after the first good snow of the season. We’re hoping we can get together in November or December, but we’ll just have to wait and see. Plans are to meet at the end of Kittredge Road (do not proceed to the City Forest parking area). We’ll head out over the old landfill hump and access trails in North Penjajawoc Forest. This is one of the preserves we haven’t held a lot of programs on but should be explored more often. Bring a thermos with hot water and we’ll supply the cocoa mix.
A Frozen Marsh outing at West Penjajawoc Grasslands is always great fun with cool things to see and a unique beauty that should be on everyone’s annual to-do list (so close to home!). We need a well-frozen marsh for safety – January or February? We’re letting you know now, so be sure to look for the email. And don’t be afraid to check in with us if you think conditions are just right.
We’ll be sure to send all the details your way. If you’re not currently receiving email from Bangor Land Trust, contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 942-1010. You can also leave a message any time.
