2018 Success

Grantee:  Appalachian Mountain Club

Result: 9,976 acres and 5 river miles protected

The Appalachian Mountain Club assisted the Forest Society of Maine in completing the Gulf-Hagas Whitecap project to protect 9,976 acres of mountains, forests and recreation land in the middle of Maine’s 100-Mile Wilderness. This parcel includes five miles of the West Branch of the Pleasant River, renowned for its high-quality brook trout fishing and paddling opportunities.  A 1,574-acre parcel abutting the Appalachian Trail was also donated to this project and protects much of White Cap Mountain, the highest peak in the 100-Mile Wilderness.
