dOWNEAST SALMON FEDERATION
REYNOLDS FAMILY FOREST PRESERVE
Reynolds Family Forest Preserve
This DSF preserve is an easement on land owned by the New England Forestry Foundation in Reynolds Family Forest. DSF purchased the easement with a grant from the North American Wetland Conservation Act, a program of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The 1,160-acre property is NEFF’s first Downeast Maine Community Forest.
Under the easement, the property’s forested uplands will be sustainably managed for forestry, while a wide riparian buffer easement on the property’s freshwater resources provides special protection to habitat for cold-water fish like salmon and trout.
Easements like these secure enduring land management goals on privately held land. While much of this land is a working forest, NEFF welcomes the community. Please visit their website to learn more about the recreational opportunities this landowner allows on their property.
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.
