Scarborough Land Trust conserves land for people, for wildlife – forever. With community support, we have conserved over 1,600 acres to date,  including a 434-acre landmark farm in western Scarborough, lands along the renowned Scarborough Marsh, and the land and viewshed of the Winslow Homer Studio on Prouts Neck.

SLT is a private, non-profit, community-based organization.  We conserve land where natural resources, scenic vistas and historical significance offer unique value to our community.

Land Conservation

We work with willing landowners and community partners to conserve Scarborough land to provide public access and to protect wildlife habitat – all for the benefit of the community.  We protect land through donation, purchase or easement.  Here’s a map of conserved lands in Scarborough with SLT lands marked in green. Contact us to learn more about conserving your land.

Land Stewardship

Once we protect land, we must take care of it—forever.  With dedicated volunteers, we build and maintain trails, monitor lands, manage forests and wildlife habitat, and ensure these lands thrive today, and for future generations.

Connecting People to the Land

We conduct guided nature walks and other programs to connect more people to Scarborough’s beautiful and diverse landscapes, and the incredible natural world around us.  Our trails are open year-round, for all ages, in all seasons.

We invite you to be part of the community of people committed to land conservation in Scarborough.
