“Even as communities in Maine shift and grow, the state’s land area remains the same.  Land protection ensures that land and all its resources remain accessible.”

“I grew up in a house surrounded by undeveloped forest. By the time I graduated high school the road was three lanes wide and there were shoddily built houses up and down the street. It is sad to see a thriving landscape get flattened and chewed up by sprawl. I want to work against that trend.”

“For me, conservation is about fairness and equity. Coastal Maine can be a wonderful place to live with amazing resources. It’s important to me that we make sure these resources are available for everyone.”
