April 26-27, 2013. On these days, four members of the Great Pond Mountain Conservation Trust traveled to Topsham Maine to participate in a conference subtitled “Re-Connecting Children with Nature”.
The conference, hosted by Maine Coast Heritage Trust and sponsored by L.L.Bean (among others), featured Dr. Cheryl Charles, founder (along with Richard Louv) of the Children & Nature Network, as Keynote Speaker. The conference also offered a variety of tours in the area along with thirty-two presentations on topics ranging from Easement Monitoring through Building Your Board, Social Media, Legacy Planning, and Conservation Finance to name a few.
Special thanks to Cheri Domina, Scott Bennett, Marcia Sly, and Hans Krichels for attending this conference and gleaning all this great information for the benefit of Great Pond Mountain Conservation Trust.
