"Cover Story" piece on the Sheepscot Valley Conservation Association (SVCA), which has launched one of Maine's most active and influential land trusts, mounting a campaign to create a 300-foot-wide, no-new-development corridor in the upper estuary of the Sheepscot River. The Sheepscot, with a 228-square-mile watershed that embraces 20 communities in four counties, is one of seven Maine rivers with native Atlantic salmon. The 58-mile-long river also has annual runs of alewives and American eels, and may have remnant populations of American shad and North American oysters, according to Gail Wippelhauser, a scientist with the Department of Marine Resources. The SVCA is the second-oldest land trust in Maine.
