Help Protect Maine’s Coast

  • Initiative for The Goslings

    Maine Coast Heritage Trust is working to raise $925,000 by September 2014 to purchase and conserve the Goslings Islands in Harpswell. A successful campaign will assure long term conservation and public access to these amazing islands. If MCHT cannot raise the funds, the islands will be sold on the open market, threatening the availability of The Goslings to the public.
