    • Barbecue and Presentation by Tim Glidden of Maine Coast Heritage Trust-
    • Tim Glidden of Maine Coast Heritage Trust  provided an inspiring overview of the many Maine properties and conservation programs that are sponsored by the MCHT. Most folks did not realize the extent of their properties that extend from Kittery to Lubec keeping a year-round staff of 50 that swells to 75 in the summer months.  We are so fortunate to have this organization in Maine to preserve the land and public access for generations to come.
