The Kennebec Estuary Land Trust (KELT) is dedicated to the protection of the land, water, and wildlife of the Kennebec Estuary region. With eight preserves open year-round dawn until dusk for the public's enjoyment, the land trust is committed to providing access to these public lands for low-impact and traditional recreation including hunting, where appropriate.
Hunting is allowed at six preserves: Thorne Head, Sewall Woods, and Whiskeag Creek Preserves in Bath, Higgins Mountain and Weber Kelly Preserves in Georgetown, and Bonyun Preserve on Westport Island. Hunting is not permitted on Green Point Preserve in West Bath and Merrymeeting Fields Preserve in Woolwich due to restrictions placed by the donor.
KELT would like to remind both hikers and hunters to be cautious during the 2012 hunting season. When hiking on KELT trails or elsewhere during hunting season, wear visible orange clothing and exercise caution. As always, KELT urges dogs to be on leash.
