Our responsibility is to leave this world, and our coast, a better place for future generations.
“Maine is a place that still feels untamed, but it is facing more pressure than ever to stay that way. The conservation of wild landscapes goes beyond the environment—safeguarding natural spaces positively impacts people and communities and helps preserve Maine’s unique way of life.”
Working for an organization whose purpose is to conserve these beautiful places [while balancing the needs of our communities] is fulfilling, inspiring, and gives me hope that future generations may still be able to experience the tranquility and beauty of our natural environment.
“Sometimes the impact we make can be difficult to measure, but when I help deliver boxes of produce to Come Spring Food Pantry the impact of MCHT’s work is undeniable.”
“For me, land conservation is about natural resource sovereignty and land justice. Protecting, stewarding, and holding these places and resources in common and in perpetuity.”
“I started working on a dairy farm when I was 14. It’s great to see kids at Aldermere learning about hard work and how to do things around a farm. So many don’t know where their meat comes from, or their milk; it’s very helpful for people in the area to come here and see how it all works.”
“Working with young people, I see the impact of MCHT’s work on a daily basis—when a teenager asks why something grows a certain way, or how a bee finds a flower. My hope is that this engagement with nature is the beginning of a life-long respect for the earth.”
