Deer Isle is a spectacular island community of 24,000 acres and 112 miles of shoreline, comprising the towns of Deer Isle and Stonington and outlying islands.

Island Heritage Trust is a community-based, non-profit land trust contributing to the well-being of the island community by conserving its distinctive landscape and natural resources, maintaining public access to valued trails, shoreline and islands, and by providing educational programming for all ages.

Call to Artists

Call For Artists

The Trust is looking for black and white original artwork for eight brochures that will visually represent the beauty and character of Deer Isle’s preserves. Artists may submit one or multiple illustrations for one or multiple brochures. Winning cover art will become the public face of the preserves for decades to come.

Please refer to the Preserve Brochure Cover Art Contest Guidelines for contest details; artwork size is very specific to the format of the brochures. Guidelines can be found here or contact to have them sent.
Island Heritage Trust is excited to introduce our newest piece of land, Crystal Cove Preserve. This Oceanville property was generously donated by the Homann family, and will be open for visitors come fall of 2016.

7th Graders' Beach Grass Project at Causeway Beach

Martha Bell, Island Heritage Trust Environmental Educator, along with Mickie Flores, DISES Middle School Science teacher, and a handful of her 7th graders continue the work of studying and encouraging the strong growth of Causeway Beach's Beach Grass this May. After having placed the flags up around the strip of grass last fall, the protected beach grass has shown great progress as it grew out beyond the flags!
Island Heritage Trust is taking its school programs to a whole new level! Read Mike Little's letter to the editor here from the November 21, 2013 Island Ad-Vantages to find out how. More info on the Marine Studies Pathway.
