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.

Island Heritage Trust is hiring!

For consideration, send in a cover letter, resume, and contacts for three references. If you love conservation, the Deer Isle-Stonington Community, and connecting the community and visitors with nature, here are three great ways to get engaged in this fun and meaningful work! See Position Descriptions above for more information.

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.
