2019 Maine Land Conservation Conference Archive

Each year, Maine Coast Heritage Trust presents the Maine Land Conservation Conference for and with Maine’s robust land conservation community. We come together to train on best practices in all aspects of land trust work, connect with our peers, and grapple with the most pressing issues facing land conservation today.

In 2019, we offered roundtable discussions at the end of the day rather than a 3rd workshop session; an opportunity to both listen and share expertise in one of nine topical group discussions.

Majora Carter – Keynote Speaker

Building Proud Communities

When New York City wanted to bring 40% of its trash to her neighborhood in the South Bronx, Majora Carter pushed back. Her goal of building a prouder community grew to include more than just green space.

In partnership with local government, businesses, and neighborhood organizations she has improved opportunities for transportation, fitness and recreation, nutrition, and economic development. Majora’s lessons learned will remind us that environment is just one component in building a stronger, healthier community.
