“To me, I see conservation as an ongoing practice that has built itself on the dispossession of Indigenous lands and peoples while dismissing our knowledge systems and economies despite the evidence that our presence is critical for being in sustainable relationships in environments.”

“I’m trying to kindle and nourish that little spark we feel when exploring a place—like the Stone Barn Farm—that illuminates the values and work of those who have cared for it across the generations.”

“Regardless of if you’re looking through a natural, cultural, social, or economic lens, the public benefits are too many and special places are too few, for us not to protect and provide public access for the future.”

“Ever since I was a kid I felt at home in the outdoors. Growing up in rural Maine, the rivers and trees were our playground, and the streams and woods inspired our imaginations. Fishing, hunting, hiking, and exploring helped shape who I am, and I am so grateful to be working in a field that allows me to help protect and care for the resources that I have such a personal connection to.”

“To hear from a young Passamaquoddy Tribal member that to be on the land allows the Tribal legends and stories from that place to be alive in the 21st century is very meaningful. I go to sleep at night knowing that this will be so for the future generations.”
