The Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust is a not-for-profit charitable organization that has made a 999-year commitment to protect the wilderness properties under its care. These preserved lands will thrive for the generations to come, aid in climate change and stand as an example of how to care for our wildlands and the species who inhabit them. There are currently eight properties under our protection with another three under consideration.  As a charitable organization, with no government funding, events such as the Go Wild Gala, are essential to help fund the work we do.
