Keynote Speaker, Leia Lowery

We’ll be 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.

RRCT Maine Conservation Award Recipient: John Wensman and Fiddlehead School of Arts & Sciences

John earned a BA in English and French from the University of Minnesota and an MAT from Brown University. He taught in public, independent, and international schools before moving to Maine to join the experiential, place-based Coastal Studies for Girls semester school. John now works at Fiddlehead School of Arts & Sciences in Gray. He and Fiddlehead are receiving RRCT’s Maine Conservation Champion Award for their roles connecting the Fiddlehead School students to conservation land and the outdoors. John has engaged his middle school students on RRCT preserves for the past three years. They’ve helped build trails, create and install interpretative signs and have engaged in science and history in the outdoors. We applaud John and Fiddlehead School for using conservation land as a place for education and growth.
