Year Conserved: 2016
The Forest Society of Maine (FSM) partnered with Downeast Lakes Land Trust (DLLT) as they completed a decade long landscape conservation initiative in the Downeast Lakes region. The Amazon-Musquash easement was created on a portion of DLLT’s recent larger acquisition in order to provide additional conservation measures due to its ecological values. The reserve is host to a diversity of natural habitats, including a Bog Ecosystem, an Unpatterned Fen Ecosystem, a Birch-Oak Talus Woodland, and an Ironwood-Oak-Ash Woodland.There are also two small waterfalls on the property, which is uncommon in the Downeast Lakes region.
