Island Heritage Trust was founded in 1987 for the protection of Deer Isle’s 24,000 acres. This Trust is a non-profit private land Trust devoted to conserve Deer Isle’s scenic areas, open space, wildlife habitats, and natural resources. IHT has ownership of eighteen properties and has therefore protected over 13 miles of shore. This grant is in support of the Backbone Trail project.
