Coastal Mountains Land Trust launched a campaign in 2017 — in honor of Skip and Jo Pendleton — to establish an annual internship focused on stewardship of community trails in the greater Belfast area. The Pendletons were volunteers with the land trust for more than 20 years and were involved with the creation of the Belfast Rail Trail, the Little River Community Trail and the Hills to Sea Trail. In November, the land trust reached its fundraising goal of $75,000. Last summer, Olivia LaRoche of Searsmont served as the land trust’s first Pendleton intern. Waldo County–area students who wish to apply for an internship with Coastal Mountains Land Trust should visit, where the position will be posted in early 2020.
