Straddling the Maine-New Hampshire border, Lake Umbagog and its surrounding forestland are home to moose, bald eagles, loons, and other wildlife. Since 1999, The Trust for Public Land has helped the State of New Hampshire create a new park on the southern tip of the lake, and added roughly 8,000 acres to the Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge, including the first addition to the refuge in Maine. Our work with the Refuge and local communities continues as we identify land protection priorities for the Lake Umbagog watershed.
