Decades of grassroots effort and millions of dollars of public and private support fueled the conservation work of Kittery Land Trust, York Land Trust, Great Works Regional Land Trust and The Nature Conservancy that culminated in the nature preserves featured in the new G2MO guide/map. For management and maintenance of public access to these treasured community preserves, each land trust depends on a dedicated corps of volunteers and the sustained financial support of its members. If you enjoy visiting these nature preserves and are not yet a member, please join your local land trust today. Current and new land trust members receive a copy of the G2MO Guide FREE!
