Community Conservation: Finding the Balance Between Nature & Culture

This new documentary, created by Emmy Award Winning film maker, Mark Ireland, features four Maine land trusts over the course of four seasons, demonstrating their efforts toward conservation for all members of their community.

The beauty of Maine — from coast to mountains, farmland to deep forests — is richly captured in this film. Hikers, kayakers, immigrant farmers, kids, fishing guides, balsam tree-tippers, canoe-builders and more, tell the stories of local communities finding balance in nature. At its deepest level, community conservation seeks to address the traditions and needs of all community members, providing access to preserved lands and creating projects that build constituencies across diverse communities. The four land trusts featured in the film offer inspirational examples of how community conservation can be done.

Like the land trusts featured in this film, Frenchman Bay Conservancy strives to ensure that conserved lands provide benefit for both people and nature, like creating wildlife corridors – large swaths of undeveloped habitat, and also helping to ensure shore access for worm and clam diggers.

Join us on November 21 to learn more about the community conservation work happening throughout the state and locally.  Following the film, Mark Ireland and a panel of representatives from Frenchman Bay Conservancy, Downeast Lakes Land Trust, and Maine Coast Heritage Trust with lead a discussion and Q&A session.
