Protecting Our Lands
Success Stories

Scenic Conway   The Upper Saco Valley Land Trust completed two easements that together permanently protect more than 1,500 acres and nearly 4 miles of undeveloped road frontage on roads designated as scenic by the Town of Conway.

Classic Conservation

1954   Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas leads a "blister brigade" of hikers down the old Chesapeake and Ohio canal from Cumberland, Md. to Washington D.C. to oppose a highway that he said would spoil the natural beauty of the canal. The area became a 12,000 acre national park in 1971.

Words for the Wise

If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them something more than the miracles of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it.

–President Lyndon B. Johnson
on the signing of the Wilderness Act of 1964
