Year conserved: 2022
About the property: The Coburn Gore Forest Conservation Easement permanently conserves 8,175 acres of forestlands—7,075 acres of working forests and 1,100 acres designated as ecological reserve. A previously unprotected forest in a conservation corridor is now permanently conserved. The Coburn Gore property contains the headwaters that flow to the Chain of Ponds, Dead River, and ultimately the Kennebec River, and are highly rated for their resiliency to climate change. The area is also home to a portion of an important piece of American Revolutionary War history – the Benedict Arnold Trail.
