About This Event

The Kennebec Land Trust is excited to announce our newest project—purchasing and permanently conserving 330 acres in Fayette, including the top of 600-foot Surry Hill. This extensive property features over 250 acres of forestland, streams flowing into our local lakes and ponds, valuable wetlands, and phenomenal scenic views. This new community conservation property will provide many recreational opportunities, including hiking, snowmobiling, hunting, mountain biking, and nature observation.

Join KLT this summer to walk the land and take in the views. Several events are planned to welcome the public to the property. Walks are planned for Thursday, July 11 at 9:30 AM and Thursday, September 26 at 5:30 PM. Meet at the bus turnaround at the south end of the Tom Surry Road in Fayette. Free and open to the public.

For more information or for directions, please call KLT at (207) 377-2848 or visit our website.

Note: At this time, there is no formal trail system.

Additional Information

KLT plans to maintain approximately fifteen acres as open fields to preserve scenic views of the White Mountains and nearby hills, lakes, and woodlands. The Surry Hill fields offer tasty blueberries for hikers and habitat for pollinators, ground-nesting birds, and resident and migratory raptors. This ambitious effort is also an inspiring and hopeful example of how land trusts and other conservation owners are making a big difference in the world. Undeveloped land sequesters carbon - a natural climate solution.

Generous members and supporters, including one anonymous large donor and Camps Winnebago, Laurel, and Vega, have already pledged or donated $188,680 (as of June 12, 2019). In order to complete this conservation project by the end of October, KLT needs to raise an additional $102,000 through private donations and grants.
