Boston Globe Covers Effort to Preserve Island Where 4-H Camp Held

The Boston Globe article “To preserve access to Maine island, they may have to buy it,” details the campaign to raise money so Maine Coast Heritage Trust can purchase High Island, the site of Blueberry Cove, University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s 4-H summer camp.

The land trust would preserve the 22-acre island off the coast of St. George, keeping it open to the public and summer campers, just as the island’s owners have done for the last 40 years. About half of the needed $700,000 has been raised, according to the article.
