UNITY, Maine (AP) - A Maine land trust says a recent open space acquisition creates a 1,500-acre corridor of conserved land in the state for hikers and nature lovers.

The Sebasticook Regional Land Trust has purchased the land along with The Nature Conservancy and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. It is a 150-acre parcel along Bog Brook in Waldo County.

A spokesman for the land trust says the land will be called The Rines Wetlands and Wildlife Preserve. It was sold by sisters Jackie Ingraham and Linda Berry.

Land trust executive director Jennifer Irving says the land is home to moose, bears, bobcats, fishers and hawks. It is surrounded by the land trust’s Moulton’s Mill Preserve and Fowler Bog Preserve.
