State Funding for the Headwaters On Hold
A big thank you to our local ( and regional ) legislators who tried to get the Land for Maine's Future bonds released. Unfortunately, the House was not able to get enough votes to override the Governor's veto of LD 1378.
Come January, though, we hope there will be a proposal to extend the 2010 bond monies. Meanwhile, we thank our legislatures for all they've done this session.
Big Step Forward for Brave Boat Headwaters
Habitat and Water Quality Improvement at Rustlewood Farm
Shrubland is currently being developed at KLT's recently conserved, 300-acre Rustlewood Farm. The goal of this work is to help protect the water quality of Spruce Creek and Curtts Ridge Brook and create safe habitat for wildlife like the threatened New England cottontail.
Sophomores Build New Bridge at Norton
Mr. Merrill's Sophomore Advisor Group - mission accomplished
It was the start of their summer vacation, but a group of Traip Academy sophomores were out carrying heavy logs a quarter of mile through the woods.The students were completing their Sophomore Learning Project for which they were constructing a bog style bridge over some wetlands at KLT's Norton Preserve. It was a team-effort, accomplished over two days with lots of fore discussion and planning. And in the end, they were proud of having created something of concrete and lasting value to their community. Thank you Mr.Merrill's Advisor Group!

Christine Bennett and Gary Mitchell at KLT's table
It was another great turnout at the Kittery Block Party! We announced the winners of our Otter Art Contest, raffled off two very cute stuffed animal otters, had the chance to talk to more people about KLT's work, and gained some new supporters!

A big thank you to Kittery Trading Post and their customers for the generous support they have given KLT through their Round Up program for conservation.
Please remember to round up when making purchases at KTP. It is an easy way to help KLT and other conservation organizations, which help make southern Maine such a great place to live!
