Date & Location: Thursday, Dec 7, 6-9 pm, Curtis Memorial Library, 23 Pleasant St, Brunswick
The AMC Maine Chapter Conservation Committee and the Meetings Committee invite you to join our guest speakers for an enlightening look at how land is conserved in Maine. Representing the local land trust level – Angela Twitchell from the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust, the state wide (and beyond) large land preservation efforts – Bill Patterson from The Nature Conservancy, and what tools are out there for funding these types of efforts – Warren (Whit) Whitney from the Maine Coast Heritage Trust. Learn about how these organizations go about their work, what you can do to help, how you can find out more about these conservation efforts including where to look for information and how you can stand up to ensure future funding programs. From water access to mountain views, we count on these preserved places to enjoy the great outdoors. We’ll be sure to throw in plenty of photos to entice you to visit some of these conserved lands and include some tips on finding that perfect spot you might want to discover. Potluck dinner will start at 6pm (please bring a dish to share, help us be green and bring your own cup, plates and silverware). Presentation at 7pm. Contact Michelle Moody for more information.
