Changes in land ownership patterns and the local economy are raising new concerns about future timber supplies, recreational access and the unique character of the region.
AMC is a member of the Mahoosucs Initiative, which is working with local communities to set a course for the economic and ecological future of the region. AMC is assisting in this effort by:
Advocating for land conservation funding in the region, specifically in the Androscoggin Headwaters.
Aligning the Mahoosucs Initiative with conservation and recreation groups in the High Peaks region of Maine to share success stories and collaborate on region-wide projects.
Working with newly formed community trail clubs to help develop more localized trail systems and mapping.
Help to protect the Mahoosucs – join the Conservation Action Network
