Land trust launches capital campaign



Kennebunk Land Trust announced that it will embark on a 2015-16 capital campaign to fund the acquisition and conservation of a parcel of land in Kennebunk. Located on Webber Hill Road, the 111-acre parcel is an uninterrupted tract of land with nearly a mile of direct frontage along the Mousam River. The land is comprised of field, forested upland and wetlands. The trust is working with the estate of Leander Crepeau to protect the property from development. In his lifetime, Crepeau was an avid outdoorsman and hunter, and he had an affinity for the land. “Now, we have this great chance to not only fulfill his legacy, but to conserve a magnificent tract of land for the public to enjoy.” said trust Executive Director Marie Louise St.Onge. “The strong features of this property are many, including: water protection, outdoor classroom opportunities, river access, habitat protection, and interesting trail systems for all ages. We are so very excited about this terrific opportunity. We need everyone’s help to make it happen.” The trust needs to raise $600,000 in project costs to complete the venture by May 29. Donations of all sizes are needed and welcome. Those interested in more information about this property and the campaign are invited to contact the trust at 985-8734 or email info@kennebunklandtrust.org.
