A Collaborative Project Between the Women’s Health Resource Library
and Maine Coast Heritage Trust
Imagine this. You are in downtown Milbridge. But a quick walk transports you to a place of natural splendor, serenity and a sense of remoteness. You have arrived at Milbridge Commons, where you are instantly connected to nature via the sweeping views of Narraguagus Bay, winding walking trails that follow the curve of the land, and bountiful gardens, lush with organic vegetables.
The Women’s Health Resource Library is collaborating with Maine Coast Heritage Trust to make this vision a reality. Together we will create a community space at Milbridge Commons that transforms the health and vitality of our modest village.

Phase 1 of the Milbridge Commons project is $369,000 and will include property infrastructure (grading, drainage, parking, and water), the outer loop walking trail, the vegetable gardens, the children’s play area, access to the water, the maintenance shed, and stewardship funds. Our fundraising focus is now on the Children’s Play Area!
