Keeping You Informed

DSC_0885.jpg

Engaging people of all ages on how our earth’s climate is changing is a role KELT takes seriously. We partner with local 6th grade classes to teach students about what climate change is, why it is happening, and how it will change our lives and landscapes in Maine. KELT also teams up with our land trust neighbors to think and plan regionally about conservation practices that will help our region to deal with climate change. We strive to offer programs that keep people informed with the most up to date climate change information.

We could work together, not let the water rise
Make a very good plan, yes, that would be wise.
