Outdoor enthusiasts talk climate change at Sportsmen Expo

Mary Howes from the Androscoggin Land Trust said her organization is seeing the effects of climate change throughout the 5,300-acre preserve. The many storms and flooding western Maine has had in just one to two years’ time is for sure changing access and reshaping the landscapes ALT preserves for hunters and hikers, she said.

“Many who visit our lands mention climate change and want to make sure we’re staying on top of it,” Howes said. “Obviously, there’s nothing we can do ourselves, but we try to stay educated and educate people who follow us and visit … We want to make sure everybody has an opportunity to get outdoors and to be able to hike some lands and most of the lands are open to hunting. We really conserve the land for people to use. And we’re always looking to conserve more.”
