land trust

Since 1982, DSF has conserved more than 6,000 acres, either through fee-purchase or conservation easement, which includes more than 70 miles of river frontage. We currently own or have easements on 75 individual parcels throughout Washington and Hancock counties in Maine.

As of 2023, our Land Trust is officially Accredited! That means that means our
Land Trust meets national quality standards for protecting important natural
places and working lands forever. Accreditation proves that DSF Land Trust
demonstrates sound finances, ethical conduct, responsible governance, and
lasting stewardship. See our list of conserved lands open to the public below.

We welcome the public to the DSF Land Trust properties and ask that you review the Hunting & Wildlife Viewing Equipment Policy in advance of your visit. All properties are 'carry-in, carry-out'.  You must have a permit to have a campfire on the properties.


State law requires fire permits for all open fires (including in campsite fire rings). Campfires may be banned during dry periods. Contact the Maine Forest Service for a permit at (207) 827-1800.
