Professional Stewardship for KLT
KLT welcomes Jeff Cantara, our new part-time Stewardship professional. Jeff has worked as a wildlife biologist, a wildland firefighter, a wetland scientist and an environmental project manager. Since 2002, he and his wife Renee have also owned and operated New Roots Farm, a diversified organic vegetable and livestock operation on the New Hampshire Seacoast.
Jeff enjoys using this unique skill set to insure that the conservation efforts of Kittery Land Trust are managed with an eye to both ecological integrity and the rich heritage of Maine’s working landscapes.
Headway on the Headwaters
KLT is thrilled to have been awarded $400,000 from the North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) in support of the Brave Boat Headwaters conservation project. This grant is a significant step forward in the goal of protecting 150 acres along scenic Route 103 that includes critical wetlands, wildlife habitat, historic sites, and land that protects water quality of the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge.

Welcome Kalle Matso to the KLT Board
We are pleased to welcome Kalle Mato to the KLT Board. Attracted by the Brave Boat Headwater project, Kalle initially got involved as a volunteer on the Acquisitions Committee. He now serves as co-Vice President of the Board.
Kalle brings impressive commitment; level-headed, strategic thinking; and relevant professional experience to the position. He is a researcher and public engagement facilitator at the University of New Hampshire, where he focuses on coastal and estuarine science.
Thank you for the Fabulous Support!
A big THANK YOU to all who supported Kittery and York Land Trusts during the month of October at the Fabulous Find with your generous donations and inspired purchases.
The money KLT received offers much needed operational support during a very busy time for KLT. It also allows us to begin offering nature-based education opportunities for Kittery students.
And a heartfelt THANK YOU to the dedicated Board and volunteers at The Fabulous Find for their tireless work on behalf of local nonprofits. They truly enrich our community!
