Waldoboro — On Dec. 23, Midcoast Conservancy accepted a donated Conservation Easement on 49 acres, owned by Jim Doble in Waldoboro. The property is near Clarry Hill Preserve, as well as several connected conservation easements. Together these protected lands now total nearly 700 acres protected for wildlife habitat, clean air and water filtration.

“I’ve been thinking about conserving this land for a long time. I want to protect the trees and environment, and it is important to me to keep this land intact. I’ve enjoyed it for nearly 40 years and want future generations to be able to enjoy it, too," Doble said.

The property will remain in private ownership. By Doble’s request, this Conservation Easement includes public access on trails to be developed on the protected property.

Senior Land Steward Chris Schorn says “this property protects valuable wildlife habitat, preserves the scenic nature of the landscape, and has good potential for recreational trails. We are grateful for the generosity and foresight of private landowners like Jim who want to share the special places they cherish.”

Land Protection Specialist Anna Fiedler says “It is an honor to support this next step in the vision for connected protected land stretching from Clarry Hill to Medomak Pond — one which is made possible by land owners in the area who hold this vision close to their hearts.”
