The Maine Island Trail is one of the most well managed and well thought out land conservation projects I have ever encountered. By combining recreation and land management interests in a way that simultaneously preserves undeveloped coastline and gives people who pledge stewardship access to it they have truly made the coast of Maine a better place. MITA accomplishes all this by educating land owners, both private and Public, that there is real value in wilderness. By providing a financial link through voluntary membership fees between recreational users and land owners, MITA has forged sometimes unlikely relationships on the coast of Maine and facilitated community discussion about conservation that is long overdue. I know that there are several other organizations that have sprung up that use the ingenious MITA model of stewardship and conservation and hopefully there will be many more as MITA has proven it successful.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
all friendly and happy. They take pride in their work.
