RRCT Celebrates!

Skyline Farm, 95 The Lane, North Yarmouth
Thursday, August 15, 2019  

5 pm to 8 pm

Please join us for a warm late-summer evening under the stars with live music and good company celebrating RRCT’s recent successes. This year we’ll celebrate Yarmouth’s new Riverfront Woods Preserve (closing July 15, 2019), expansion of the Chesley Meadows Preserve at Runaround Pond (2019), expansions of Old Crow Ranch conserved farmland in Durham (2019), the creation of the Big Falls Preserve in New Gloucester and Auburn (December 2018) and the new Lower Gloucester Village, Little League, and Intervale Project that we unveiled with strong support in July 2019. Join us to thank the landowners, donors, volunteers, and supporters of each of these projects, and to learn more about up and coming projects, like the Lower Gloucester Village project.

Join our celebration under the tent with friends, families, and neighbors. We’ll serve delicious food by Blue Elephant Catering, brews by Brickyard Hollow, and good wine. Field Rider and his bluegrass band The World Famous Grassholes will bring their banjo pickin’, fiddlin’ fun music. Once again, we’ll have campfires and s’mores, and much more. We looking forward to seeing you.

This year our Maine Conservation Champion Award is being presented to Brownie Carson who has a legacy of incredible conservation work with the Natural Resources Council of Maine (NRCM), and recently as an elected official. Brownie was instrumental in river restoration projects, including dam removal on the Penobscot River which opened up 500 miles of river for sea-run salmon and other species, the clean up of the Androscoggin River, and scores of issues and campaigns over decades. The issues that most push Brownie’s buttons, in his words, are “pollution and fouling of land and water and the risks that poses to life.”

We are honored that Brownie will be joining us at RRCT Celebrates! and look forward to his shared wisdom in conservation .
