Welcome!

Monhegan is a small island ten miles off the coast of Maine. It has long been a destination for artists, birders, nature lovers, and tourists. It is also the home of a small but thriving year-round fishing community.

In the 1950s the Monhegan Associates was formed to preserve the land on the island which had not been developed up until that time (the “wild lands”) and since then has done what we can to preserve them, protect them from harmful invasives, and maintain trails for the public to enjoy. We sponsor ecology talks, children’s programs, and research projects, and work with groups such as MISCA and the Island Farm project to support the island as a whole.
