Brave Boat Headwaters Project



 

Headway on Brave Boat Headwaters

KLT is thrilled to have been awarded $400,000 from the North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) in support of the Brave Boat Headwaters conservation project. This grant is a significant step forward in the goal of protecting 150 acres along scenic Route 103 that includes critical wetlands, wildlife habitat, historic sites, and land that protects water quality of the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge.

Conservation of Rustlewood Complete!


(left to right: Rob Nichols, Christine Bennett, Beth, Richard, and Ken Johnson)

We are thrilled to have closed on the purchase of a conservation easement at Rustlewood Farm, permanently protecting 300 acres of environmentally rich fields and forest that straddle Kittery and Eliot, Maine. 
 
With the completion of this project, we are proud to have nearly doubled the amount of conserved land overseen by KLT; 700+ acres that will be here for our grandchildren’s grandchildren and will help ensure a sustainable future for Kittery.

Because water "otter" be clean

Emma Webb shows off one of the  stuffed river otters raffled off at the Kittery Block Party. It was a fun introduction to the Brave Boat Headwaters campaign mascot! River otters can be found in Brave Boat Harbor. Their presence is a good indication of clean water.
