The Old Schulten Farm

383 Old Stage Road Woolwich 

Join other KELT supporters to socialize, enjoy cocktails, heavy hors d'oeuvres and hear from an award-winning author. 

The event benefits all of KELT's work. 



Featuring Maine Author and Journalist Colin Woodard

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


We look forward to celebrating the estuary with you!


We are grateful to our Growing list of Business Sponsors

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.
