Successful Closing on BBH Land
December 2nd closing at KLT Office
Kittery Land Trust is happy to announce it has closed on the purchase of a 60-acre parcel of land on Brave Boat Harbor Road. We thank early, passionate supporters of this project. We are excited to have reached this milestone but are mindful of all the work ahead. We must now ensure funding to pay back our 1.34 million dollar low-interest “mortgage,” which covers the purchase amount of the property. Read More

Volunteers Make It Happen
Christine Bennett and Gillian Carter welcome vistors to BBH Ski
Thank you to Wendy Pomeroy for organizing a great Brave Boat Harbor Ski with the good help of Gillian Carter, Mark Alesse, Tony Barrington, and Gary Mitchell. A special thank you goes out to Jim Gailey who used his Bobcat to clear snow to make a path from the road to the gate and to Ellen Dawson and her great husky Boomer for providing dog sled rides!
Backyard Botanist: Winterberry
by Wendy Pomeroy
Winterberry at Brave Boat Harbor 60-acre parcel
At a time of year when we crave some color, we can be thankful for the Common Winterberry. Humble in its deciduous summer leaves, it cuts loose in the fall, with its shower of red berries that hover over wet areas like stream banks and wet road edges. The berries are in full glory after all the leaves have dropped, giving them little to compete with against the rich tones of the fall and drab winter landscapes. We can cut stems to create holiday bouquets that last beyond Valentine’s Day. Birds love the berries.
A Beautiful Day for A Dog Sled Ride
Boomer is ready to take someone on a sled ride
Good spirits, sunshine, warmer temperatures, and plenty of snow made for a perfect afternoon of ski/snowshoeing at Brave Boat Harbor. All ages gathered for the chance to check out the beauty of KLT's pristine new property, recently saved from development. And kids were treated to a dog sled ride thanks to the husky Boomer.
