Climate Change

Because lands protected by land trust’s such as KLT are owned and managed “in perpetuity”, we take a very long view while doing our work. Exactly how a rapidly changing (in geological terms) climate will effect land, ecosystems and biological diversity in Kittery is unknown.  But we don’t need that much precision to know that greater variety and better connections will help future Kittery residents (human and non-human) to adapt. Thanks to an in-depth analysis of the geology, features and location of land in our region, sponsored by a grant from the Open Space Institute, KLT and our MtA2C partners are able to incorporate climate change resiliency measures into our strategic planning and project selection. Click here to read the OSI report
