Stay tuned for details as we plan our 2019 event.

Many thanks to all of you who participated in RRCT Celebrates! We really enjoyed seeing so many of our members at Skyline Farm  on Thursday the 23rd of August 2018.  It was a pleasure to meet so many people, and to celebrate thirty years of conservation and the many people involved in creating and nurturing the Royal River Conservation Trust.

Thank you to Allagash Brewing Company for donating the beer, Green Bee Drinks for donating the green tea drinks, Black Tie Company for the wonderful food, 317 Main and Chris Moore for the fantastic music and all those who hosted, and sponsored RRCT Celebrates! 2018.

Special thanks to Don Perkins, the recipient of our first Maine Conservation Champion Award, for taking the time to share his knowledge and insight on global climate change and its connection to the work we do in and around the Royal River watershed.

About our Maine Conservation Champion Award recipient: Don Perkins is a co-founder of the Friends of Casco Bay and has been the CEO and president of the Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) for twenty three years. GMRI’s research teams were the ones who did the analysis finding that the Gulf of Maine is warming faster than 99% of the global ocean; GMRI lives on the leading edge of climate change research. GMRI’s community team is leading an urgent effort to accelerate shellfish and algae culture to diversify our climate-vulnerable lobster economy. Finally, the GMRI education team has the courage to believe that GRMI can drive Maine’s emergence as a science/math literate state — a critical thinking state — over a 30 year horizon.
