Making our conservation dreams a reality in 2015

Thanks to our volunteers, members, donors, business and foundation partners, 2014 was a year of many victories for Presumpscot Regional Land Trust.  You can read the highlights here but they include successfully completing the Randall Orchard Conservation Project and acquiring 50 acres along Mill Brook in Westbrook (with more hopefully to come).

With your support, we look forward to another banner year in 2015. There are many conservation, stewardship and education prospects on tap—we have a lot to do!
Here are some of our goals for 2015.

  • Conserve additional properties and create more recreational opportunities along Mill Brook, including the protection of land neighboring our recently acquired 50 acres, new recreational trails, and more.
  • Plan and carry out ways to involve our members and friends to celebrate our special places where we are opening new trails, creating recreational opportunities, such as a new boat launch and trail head parking on the Hawkes property.
  • Redefine our staffing need and a funding strategy to sustain it—paid staff allows us to obtain grants for important projects, coordinate activities along the Sebago to the Sea Trail, facilitate the work of volunteers and carry out our conservation goals for the coming year.
  • Provide essential stewardship of our growing acreage, establish essential partnerships with neighboring schools and neighbors for education and outreach, and further the conservation of important lands in the area for the environment, recreation, and future generations.

To reach these challenging goals we are seeking $50,000 through individual and business donations. To that goal, our Annual Fund Campaign is most crucial.

Would you consider making a gift of $50, $100, $250 or more to our Annual Fund Campaign? Your gift will not only help fund our operating costs, but will leverage grants and other sources of funding. In other words, your unrestricted investment in our prospects makes our conservation dreams reality.
