Community Conservation in Southern Maine - Film Screening January 11, 2018

FREE FILM SCREENING AND OPEN DISCUSSION: "Community Conservation: Finding the Balance between Nature and Culture" by award winning Maine filmmaker Mark Ireland.

Thursday, Jan. 11th, 2018 | 7:00 pm to 9:00pm

Location: St. Mary's Episcopal Church- 43 Foreside Road, Falmouth, ME

Chebeague & Cumberland Land Trust and four neighboring land trusts, are inviting you to a conversation on "Community Conservation." Many people have a personal connection to the land including farming, solitude, adventure, animals, fishing, sustenance, scenery, exercise, recreation, hunting, heritage, mobility, or more. These personal connections, when woven together, are often the foundation of strong communities. Our core question: How can land trusts in Southern Maine use land conservation resources to more deeply engage all people toward stronger communities and better quality of life? We are reaching out for your input as part of a coordinated effort to ask, listen and respond.

As a special event, we invite you to join us Thursday, January 11th at 7pm in Falmouth, for the documentary film screening Click Here To Watch The Film Trailer and an open panel discussion on the future of land conservation in southern Maine with filmmaker Mark Ireland and leaders from CCLT, Falmouth Land Trust, Presumpscot River Land Trust, Royal River Conservation Trust and Maine Coast Heritage Trust. 


Whether or not you can join us for the film, we hope you'll participate in our on-line survey soliciting your input on how land trusts in southern Maine can strengthen communities, build common ground, and unite community leaders around shared goals.  We'll discuss the results of the survey at the panel discussion after the film.
