In considering properties for conservation protection, the Pemi-Baker Land Trust seeks those which exhibit one or more of the following characteristics:

  • Water Quality and Quantity
  • Forest and Agriculture Resources
  • Wildlife Habitat and Plant Communities
  • Community Value

Among lands with significant conservation values, PBLT will favor properties that:

  • Abut, enlarge, or provide linkages to previously protected land,
  • Have community support through Master Plans, referenda, or other public expressions,
  • Are subject to an immediate threat of change of use,
  • Are available under unique circumstances that are not likely to occur again,
  • Are important to the local community,
  • Would be a stimulus for future protection projects
