If you are unable to make a donation or if you would enjoy working alongside us, there are many opportunities to volunteer with WFLT!  From programs, to trail-work, easement monitoring and mailings, we offer opportunities for all interests and abilities.  Please fill out the volunteer form HERE, and include the WFLT Volunteer Waiver.  This form can be uploaded or mailed back to us at PO Box 107, Norway, ME 04268.

"Roberts Farm is a place I love to go
and use for recreational purposes—

getting others out there to do the

same is logical, and doing it from Brooklyn via social media is the best

way I can help WFLT. The benefit to me and my family (especially my kids as they get older) far outweighs the cost of volunteering."

Endowments & Bequests


Gifts of those who include Western Foothills Land Trust in their estate planning can make a valuable contribution while taking advantage of federal and state tax laws that may allow reduction of income taxes, lower gift, and estate taxes, or provide income during the donor's lifetime.


Some of the possibilities include a bequest through a will or trust; naming Western Foothills Land Trust as the beneficiary of property, valuable collections, an insurance policy or retirement plan; a charitable remainder trust or charitable lead trust; and a pooled income fund.


For more information about planned giving, including bequests and annuities, please contact Lee Dassler at 207-739-2124 or by email:
