This group implements the adopted Strategic Conservation Plan and coordinates with MtA2C Lands Protection Committee. Activities include educating interested landowners about conservation issues and working with developers and town boards on open space projects. We also maintain up-to-date maps of Kittery, showing conservation lands and important ecological information.
Membership: Christine Bennett (Acting Chair); Kalle Matso, Rob Nichols, Clayton Smith, David Collins
New land resources cannot be protected without necessary funds for acquisition. This group develops strategies to expand our financial capacity through fundraising and grant opportunities.

Outreach & Communications
If you’ve attended any of our events, you may have met some of us! We work to broaden KLT’s presence in the community through events, educational programs, and volunteer engagement. We coordinate programs with the schools to create educational experiences and opportunities to educate the next generation about the value of nature and land conservation, and to engage families through their kids.
Membership: Cyndy Pawlek (Chair); Christine Bennett, Cindy Kuliga, Wendy Pomeroy, Gale Turner, Connie Alesse
