Land At the Trust for Public Land, we don't just save land—we save land for people to enjoy, from neighborhood parks to national parks. We depend on the ongoing support of individuals to make sure our work carries on well into the future. Our mission is to create parks and protect land for people, ensuring healthy, livable communities for generations to come. Every park, playground, and public space we create is an open invitation to explore, wonder, discover, and play. We're proud to say that we've been connecting communities to the outdoors—and to each other—since 1972. Today, millions of Americans live within a 10-minute walk of a park or natural area we helped create, and countless more visit every year. For more than 25 years, The Trust for Public Land has been working in Maine and has protected over 170,000 acres, worked in communities all over the state and has created parks and trails in Portland. Our mission of protecting public lands for all people to enjoy is more urgent than ever before. Come join the discussion and learn how you can get involved.
