The Old Schulten Farm


We enjoyed a lovely (non-rainy!) evening celebrating the estuary with you at the beautiful Old Schulten Farm.

Engaging conversation with you and an insightful talk by Colin Woodard made it our best fundraiser yet.


Special Thanks To Our Generous Hosts Mike and Betsy Fear!

We are grateful to our event patrons and business supporters

We were so pleased to be joined by Maine author and journalist Colin Woodard

Woodard spoke about his book, Oceans End: Travels Through Endangered Seas, a cultural and environmental history of the coast of Maine. He focuses on ocean issues he experienced firsthand around the world and how they are emerging here in the Gulf of Maine. He touched upon his other books and their connections to Maine. 


The Old Schulten Farm


Now owned by Mike and Betsy Fear, The Old Schulten Farm was one of the first easements KELT completed. Protecting not only bountiful fields but shoreline along Nequasset Lake, it is an ideal example of a conservation easement and location for this event.
