Neat news re Benner and Allen islands (Maine)

They have been transferred to Colby College. They will develop programs, I expect eventually resulting in landing points. Consistent with prior decisions by the Wyeth’s, particularly Betsy, lobstering families continue to have full access.

good news for sure but not sure about landing points… Beaches are few and both islands have substantial dockage. Perhaps they will partner with MITA for camping on the far end of Allen?

The article talks about developing a sports program of some sort. If they do that, I suspect it would result in a landing point there. Most colleges I have seen on a shoreline have some landing/launch for the community.

It is still private and I don’t plan to trespass. But crossed fingers for something later on.

This is the original announcement and background. Recreation seems to be low on the priorities list.
