Forests and Lakes - For People Forever
The Visionaries documentary series for public television is hosted by Sam Waterston (The Killing Fields, Law & Order, The Newsroom) and highlights the stories of people all around the world that are working to make a positive difference in their community and beyond.
Downeast Lakes Land Trust is honored to be featured by Visionaries as part of their 18th season. "Forests and Lakes - For People - Forever" tells the story of how the people of Grand Lake Stream, a Maine village with a long heritage as a destination for outdoor recreation, are working to conserve natural resources that sustain the local economy and way of life. Downeast Lakes Land Trust has led an effort toward permanent conservation of 370,000 acres. With 350,000 acres permanently conserved, including 33,700 acres as a Community Forest, the trust now has the opportunity to conserve 22,000 acres around the village. The citizens of Grand Lake Stream voted unanimously at town meeting to contribute $40,000 and start the current $24 million campaign.
Join Downeast Lakes Land Trust to view this 15 minute documentary film before it airs on Maine Public Broadcasting Network and other PBS stations, and for a discussion about the land trust and its community-led conservation effort. Proceeds will benefit Downeast Lakes Land Trust.
