Pushaw Lake

Old Town, 8 miles from campus

183 acres

Owner: University of Maine

History: This lot was donated to the University of Maine in 1990. The property was granted to the Forest Society of Maine in 2011 as a conservation easement. It is a part of the Carious Bog- Penjajawoc Project along with other University of Maine properties (Smith Farm Lot, Perch Pond Lot).

Current Uses: The property is managed for timber harvest, wildlife habitat, soil and water conservation, and recreation. The lack of direct access to the property limits its use for recreation. Hunting is allowed on the property.

Potential Uses: Research projects consistent with the conservation easement are possible, although the property has not direct road access and is best accessed by boat or over the ice.
