Ending the year with a gift

With winter setting in here on Mount Desert Island, we spend some of this quiet time thinking about how to delight our visitors when, months down the road, the temperatures rise and plants blossom. The generosity of people who love the Preserve fuels our intentions. 

As we approach the end of the year, we are reaching out to our valued supporters to invite you to make a year-end donation. You may have already received an email from us. Your tax-deductible donation will enable us to continue our mission of preserving, sharing, and enhancing our lands and gardens for generations to come. You will be directly contributing to the maintenance, conservation, and educational programs that make these spaces accessible and enjoyable for visitors of all ages. 

If it has been a while since your last visit, we invite you to rediscover the magic of our gardens, with each season bringing a new symphony of colors, fragrances, and textures. Our natural lands, crisscrossed by newly rehabilitated trails, provide miles of uncrowded hikes and walks. 

To make your year-end donation, please visit our website to become a member or make a general donation. Your contribution, no matter the size, makes a meaningful impact on the future of these beloved landscapes. 

Please contact Kathryn Strand, Director of Development & Communications at, with any questions about membership or gifts to the Preserve.
