Old Town, 10 miles from campus
Owner: University of Maine Foundation
History: The Lewis lot was gifted to the Foundation in 1998.
Current Uses: This lot has 1000’ frontage on the Penobscot River and is mostly the riparian floodplain. Because of its sensitive nature no timber harvesting is planned for the Lewis Lot. Rather, is it maintained for water protection, its wildlife habitat value and aesthetics.
Potential Uses: The parcel is close to campus and provides opportunity for classes to use a laboratory to examine the processes associated with an intact Penobscot floodplain forest.
