Community Conservation: Film Screening


Community Conservation in Southern Maine – Film Screening
Thursday January 11th at 7pm
St. Mary’s, Falmouth

Please join us for this regionally significant film screening of “Community Conservation: Finding the Balance between Nature and Culture” by award-winning Maine filmmaker Mark Ireland, and the directors of five sponsoring land trusts. This will be a free film screening and open conversation about strengthening the community conservation movement in Southern Maine. Q & A and a social hour will follow the film.

The film profiles four land trusts in different regions of Maine, demonstrating the variety of efforts to make conserved lands available to all community members.

Community conservation begins by listening to many different voices in the community — then responding. Community conservation uses the strengths of land trusts to meet needs expressed by people in communities.

Five land trusts working in Southern Maine are hosting this film as one of many steps to reach out to more people — working together as part of a coordinated effort to ask, listen, and respond. The film is being co-hosted by the Presumpscot Regional Land Trust, Falmouth Land Trust, Chebeague and Cumberland Land Trust, Royal River Conservation Trust, and Maine Coast Heritage Trust. The event is free. Click here to RSVP.
