Become a Member

Thank you for your interest in getting more involved in the Clark Mountain Community Land Trust, and welcome!

We assume that you've been in touch with us to share your interests and learn more about what Associate Membership entails. If not, please send us an email before signing up here, so that we can talk further about membership.

As an Associate Member, you are joining a committed community of people who are at the very heart of the CMCLT, making it all happen. Associate Members, along with Resident Members (who live on CMCLT land) make the decisions and animate the working groups of the organization.

We expect Associate Members to do their best to attend and participate in annual General Membership meetings, to come to CMCLT events, and--if you're able--to help make all of these things happen. In return, you get to hang out with delightful people, join in envisioning new and more livable futures for Maine communities, and learn about the work of long-term land care.

Great to have you on board!
