This fall, Martha Stewart invited David MacDonald, MCHT’s Director of Land Protection to walk with her on Mount Desert Island and explain the benefits of land conservation for landowners, the public and other stakeholders. Ms. Stewart has a summer home in Seal Harbor and frequently takes hikes on trails in Acadia National Park and other places on Mount Desert Island.
David and Martha walked the Hunters Beach trail, which crosses land on which MCHT holds a conservation easement. They completed their hike at Hunters Beach, a small cobble beach in Acadia National Park.
The show aired November 18th, and you can view it by following this link. As Ms. Stewart mentions in the segment, land conservation is one of many ways you can get involved in making the world a little bit greener.
