The Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust is excited to announce the acquisition of “John J McDevitt Woods”, 230 acre parcel on the Magalloway River in Lincoln Plantation, Maine!

Nestled in the hills between Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge and the Dartmouth Second College Grant, the parcel contributes to over 28,000 acres of functionally contiguous land that dominate the headwaters and shore-lands of the Magalloway, Dead Diamond and Swift Diamond Rivers.  With 2,035’ on the Magalloway River, and portions affording magnificent views of Aziscohos and Half Moon Mountains, the conserved parcel is characterized by forested and emergent wetlands, vernal pools and upland forests. The acquisition will conserve these important natural resource attributes, through responsible and sustainable land management practices while providing public access for recreation in perpetuity. As with all Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust owned properties, a comprehensive management plan is being developed to ensure these objectives are met.

The Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust is a non-profit, 501c3, experienced land trust whose mission is to conserve and steward the natural and historical resources of the Rangeley Lakes Region for the benefit of the community and future generations. To learn more about Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust or how to get involved, visit www.rlht.org. You can also contact Shelby - aka "STWRDSHP" on the FFIM forum.

Unless I am mistaken--and I may be, because Shelby and RLHT are always working on multiple projects--this is one that Shelby and other at RLHT have been working on for five years or more.

Nice job!

Nice work. Keep it up and you might make the Gov'nah's most wanted posters (next to Nick Bennett).
