Project: Perham Stream Birding Trail
Partners: Arboretum Fund at the Maine Community Foundation, Davis Conservation Fund, Appalachian Trail Conservancy’s Wildeast Action Fund, Kay Gibson, and The Wilderness Society
The Perham Stream Birding Trail includes half a mile of frontage on Perham Stream and spectacular views of Saddleback Mountain and Mount Abraham and is the first property held in conservation by the Alliance. In addition to recreational opportunities, this parcel includes a half-mile of stream frontage where the State of Maine stocks endangered Atlantic Salmon eggs. Perham Stream is listed as a critical salmon and native brook trout habitat by the Maine Natural Areas Program, and endangered little brown bats have been located on this 80-acre parcel by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.
