"This is a large project that is really trying to integrate community and economic needs with conservation and environmental needs," said Tom Duffus, vice president and Northeast representative for The Conservation Fund, a national nonprofit organization that has worked in all 50 states since 1985 to protect more than 7.5 million acres of land.

The Conservation Fund purchased the land in Orient and an additional 4,520 acres in the Town of Weston from Wagner Forest Management in 2011 through its Working Forest Fund, but it wasn't until March of this year that Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands had the necessary funding to purchase the land from The Conservation Fund.
"It took that amount of time in order to generate the funding," Duffus explained.
...
"Both pieces [of land] are providing jobs to guide services and other recreational-based businesses that we hope will be growing in the area," Duffus said.
...
Existing networks of woods roads and multiuse trails exist on both the conserved Orient properties, Duffus said, and the plan is to formalize some of those trails and improve public access to Longley Lake with a parking area and public boat launch. Another focus is to keep access often to North Lake, where people often put in boats to paddle up Monument Brook for bird watching and bird hunting.
"That's a very popular thing that we want to be sure folks continue to have access to," Duffus said.
In addition, The Conservation Fund will be donating property to the town for a new town building and also selling three home lots near Route 1 to encourage town growth.
"The conservation is very complex," Duffus said.
...
"We don't know what the future holds for the Weston parcels that we acquired in terms of conservation," Duffus said.
