Summer 2021 - Downeast Edition
From the President
On the Mission
While serving as MCHT’s president over the past ten years, I’ve seen this organization adapt and stretch in remarkable and necessary ways to remain true to its mission.
We’ve also weathered tremendous challenges, which is not in and of itself an accomplishment, but rather an indicator of the organization’s strength, agility, and competence over the long haul.
Thanks to you and others who support MCHT year after year, we have capacities today that we didn’t dream about 50 years ago.
Bringing Back Alewives to Seal Cove Pond
MCHT is working with partners to restore fish passage between Seal Cove and Seal Cove Pond in Tremont.
If successful, we will significantly increase the value of the land we’ve already conserved along these shores and improve the future ecological health of Mount Desert Island.
A Safe and Spruced Up Stone Barn Farm
After conserving the Stone Barn Farm property for public access in the winter of 2019, we’re now focusing attention on restoring the old buildings and improving parking at the public preserve.
In My Words
Ann and David Ingram, MCHT donors
“We’re both directly involved with nonprofits, so we know what good governance looks like. MCHT isn’t just giving lip service to its mission—they’re actively pursuing it.
"We’ve set up a special fund to help preserve accessibility and provide for ongoing stewardship of MCHT’s lands and programs.”
