Using the Kennebec Land Trust as a model, this session looks at how Maine land trusts work to identify high value landscapes, wetlands, shorelines and working forests and farms, and conserve them forever--for future generations. We will examine types of land trusts, the legal basis under which they operate and the benefits of land conservation. We will also focus on examples, see photographs of different projects, and learn how they came to be conserved all by cooperating with willing land owners. Brian Kent is the immediate past president of the Kennebec Land Trust Board of Directors.
