Who We Are

For Everyone … Forever

Great Works Regional Land Trust is a member-supported organization providing conservation options to landowners and programs for community members, including 18 preserves with hiking trails. Since 1986, Great Works Regional Land Trust has conserved over 7,000 acres of natural, historic, agricultural, forestry, scenic and recreational resources in the southern Maine communities of Eliot, South Berwick, Berwick, North Berwick, Wells and Ogunquit.

Mission Statement

Great Works Regional Land Trust protects forests, farms, and water quality in southern Maine. Over the past 35 years, our grassroots nonprofit organization has worked to conserve over 7,000 acres of significant land, offering 18 preserves and counting with 30 miles of trails for vigorous hikes or gentle strolls.

GWRLT’s mission is to conserve the value of the area’s natural, historic, agricultural, forestry, scenic, and recreational resources. 

We pursue this mission by holding property and conservation easements where these values are present; managing and monitoring the lands we hold for protection; and promoting the need and importance of conservation through education and outreach.
