Coastal Mountains Land Trust

Coastal Mountains Land Trust was founded in 1986, originally under the name “Camden-Rockport Land Trust,” by a small group of local citizens intent upon the preservation of Beech Hill in Rockport, a 572-acre property featuring critical scenic and ecological values--rolling blueberry barrens, forests, a historic stone house, and the most scenically unique summit of the Camden Hills.
