UNITY, Maine – Conservationists are celebrating completion of a land acquisition that will create a 1,500-acre corridor of permanently conserved land in Waldo County for hikers, hunters, bird watchers and others to enjoy.
The purchase of 150 acres along Bog Brook was completed March 30 by Unity-based Sebasticook Regional Land Trust, along with its partners The Nature Conservancy and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
Sebasticook Regional Land Trust Executive Director Jennifer Irving said sellers Jackie (Rines) Ingraham and sister Linda (Rines) Berry liked the idea of placing the acreage into permanent conservation as a way to honor their family’s’ love of nature and wildlife.
The newly conserved acreage will be called The Rines Wetlands and Wildlife Preserve. read more
