RRCT Celebrates!

Our fifth annual summer evening fundraiser was August 18, 2022, at Skyline Farm in North Yarmouth. We’re already looking forward to next year’s event.

We were joined by Leia Lowery, the Director of Program and Outreach at The Climate Initiative (TCI) and the Kennebunkport Conservation Trust. Leia co-teaches the Gulf of Maine Field Studies class, as collaborator from the Kennebunk Conservation Trust, is co-founder of TCI, and an advocate for building stronger communities by connecting people through their local landscape and shared histories. Her work as an educator and community building resulted in her winning the Gulf of Maine Council Visionary Award in 2019, as well as her programs being featured in the national Land Trust Alliance magazine. Leia will be presenting twice at the National Land Rally in the fall of 2022.

Here is Leia’s transcript about the importance of place, youth empowerment, and our ability to confront climate change through expansive and inclusive community dialogue.

We awarded the 2022 RRCT Maine Conservation Champion Award to John Wensman and Jacinda Cotton Castro of Fiddlehead School of Arts & Sciences.
