Exeter resident Martha Pennell has made a remarkably generous offer to the Southeast Land Trust: she will donate her 13 acres of scenic land to the organization so long as we commit to keeping it forever undeveloped. Named in honor of Martha’s aunt, Emma Kimball, the “Kimball Reserve” will be a community treasure, providing a place to enjoy nature and take a leisurely walk in the woods. To accept this gift, the Land Trust is seeking $27,000 in donations by the end of the year. Donate here.Read more: Kimball Reserve Offered as Community Resource

During the meeting, those in attendance unanimously endorsed the Board's approval of the merger with the Strafford Rivers Conservancy.Thank you to those that attended!
We anticipate completing the merger in late November. Stay tuned!

In early 2013, the Southeast Land Trust embarked on a comprehensive planning process to explore and evaluate our region, our work, and our vision for the future. Our goal was to ensure our work remains relevant to the people and communities we serve by re-envisioning the role of a land trust in these changing times.
