The Royal River Conservation Trust conserves strategic parcels of land in the towns that form the Royal River watershed. We are a community-based non-profit land trust supported by local families and businesses. We have conserved 3300 acres of land, farms, and trails on the Royal River and its headwater ponds, hills, and neighborhoods.

We are passionate about the Royal River's special places, Casco Bay, and the small hills and mountains upriver. We want kids in our communities to have a sense of wonder, in their backyards. 

Our membership base is more than 500 households and businesses supporting land conservation in your community. In 2014 we increased our membership significantly, welcoming 50 new households and several new businesses. Thank you for your generosity. Please join us or donate today to support our work.

Please go to our Upcoming Events page for information on upcoming events, including our new Rain or Shine Club, with treks every Thursday at 10am, rain or shine, and our annual winter full moon trek at Pisgah Hill Preserve.

Also look for new information on our campaign to protect Knight's Pond & Blueberry Hill in North Yarmouth and Cumberland, also also the Lily Pond (Chandler Mill Pond) in New Gloucester.  Also look for new information on our work to create and promote the Royal River Water Trail and Yarmouth's West Side Trail.

If we aren't already acquainted, or if you don't find what you're looking for on this website, please phone us or drop us a note at  or stop by our office at 325 Main St, Yarmouth. (But use our Post Office Box for mailing.)
