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.

The Island Heritage Trust is a non-profit private land trust dedicated to conservation that protects significant open space, scenic areas, wildlife habitats, natural resources, and historic and cultural features that offer public benefit and are essential to the character of the Deer Isle area.

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.
