Photo Gallery from a Conservation Project in Maine’s Northern Forest

Aerial view of sunrise over Crosby Pond in Coburn Gore, Maine.

Last week, the Forest Society of Maine completed the conservation of more than 8000 acres of Maine’s Northern Forest in Coburn Gore. Bordering Quebec, this property links together hundreds of thousands of acres of public land in Maine and Quebec. The bulk of this new conservation block will sustainably managed for forestry, while 1100 acres will remain as untouched ecological reserve.

I made the photos on this page during two-plus days in June. Enjoy!

This was my second assignment for the Forest Society of Maine. Two years ago I photographed what is now the Grafton Forest Preserve which links the Mahoosuc Mountains to Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge. You can see some of those photos in my previous post, “What It’s Really Like to Make Conservation Photos in the Maine Woods.”

Some drone video from the shoot.
