Most of the wildlands of Monhegan Island, nearly 400 acres, are privately owned and managed by the Monhegan Associates Inc. The Monhegan Associates are dedicated to sustaining the natural beauty and ecology of these lands while keeping them accessible to visitors.


Over the past several years the MAI Board of Trustees has developed a list of governing documents that encompass the policy of land governance. These documents have evolved over years of discussion and decisions by various groups of trustees who are responsible for stewardship of the land and reflect the current position of the land ownership.  Read more about our Land Use Policies HERE.


Recent efforts by the Monhegan Associates have included a full surveying of all our land holdings, particularly with the boundaries with the Monhegan Plantation and with other privately owned land. These maps can be accessed for public viewing HERE
