The Cape Elizabeth Land Trust requests your feedback on the existing plan for safe and enjoyable public access to the Robinson Woods Preserve. The Public Access Plan went into effect on May 1, 2015, and we are doing a one-year evaluation. The goal of CELT’s Public Access Plan is to promote safe and enjoyable access to Robinson Woods Preserve while protecting the natural habitat and wildlife. CELT’s evaluation factors include preservation of sensitive habitat areas, incidents of dog aggression or biting, dogs on leash when required, biking when trails are open, no dogs in the water and absence of pet waste. Here is the statement of Purpose from the Robinson Woods Conservation Easement that CELT is legally required to uphold:
Purpose: This Conservation Easement is intended to protect the natural, scenic and undeveloped character of the Protected Property, and to promote the conservation of its forests, shoreland and their associated wildlife habitat values. It is also intended to balance the community need for open land available for quiet daytime non-motorized public outdoor recreation, nature observation and study, with restrictions that will ensure that the experience of the public on the Protected Property will continue to be one, increasingly rare, of relatively unstructured quiet contemplation and reverence for the natural world.
