“There are so many ways to talk about this work, from economic benefits to ecological benefits. But I come back to how the beauty of this coast is just so endlessly overwhelming. To be on the water in a thunderstorm, or to happen upon a perfect cove lined with smooth granite shoreline—for a lot of us, those are the moments that fill us up. Doing this work, knowing that these places, and these experiences, will be available for the long haul is about as good as it gets.”

Jane has been MCHT’s Director of Stewardship for over 20 years. She oversees a team of 16 year-round staff, including regional land stewards, plus many seasonal assistants and crew members in the warmer months. This team takes care of conserved land from Kittery to Lubec, including over 120 public preserves.
