9:00-10:15am – Full Moon Rising: An introduction to First Light

How do land trusts in Maine meaningfully engage issues of justice, equity and inclusion?  A significant effort, called First Light, is now in its third year of repairing relationships and sharing land and resources between land-holding organizations and Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Micmac and Maliseet First Nations. We will explore what’s at stake and what’s to be gained through these efforts to engage differently and to share perspective and power. We’ll offer an overview of what land justice means for conservation, and we’ll explore efforts to relearn, repair and return at the speed of trust and why doing these is strengthening what conservation means now and in the future.
