The Lily Pond in Deer Isle
Island Heritage Trust has been awarded a $120,000 Land for Maine’s Future grant to attempt the purchase of a 10-acre parcel of land on the Lily Pond in Deer Isle, off the Quaco Road.
IHT Executive Director Mike Little said the organization plans to build a parking lot and an access path to the pond. The entire project, including the purchase of the land, is estimated to cost $332,000. Of that, all but $70,000 has been raised or pledged.
