Downeast Lakes Land Trust (DLLT) is co-hosting two upcoming screenings of Mark Ireland’s documentary film, “Community Conservation: Finding the Balance Between Nature and Culture.”  After premiering on Maine Public Television in May, the film has received excellent reviews and highlights the work of four land trusts in Maine: Androscoggin Land Trust, Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust, Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust, and DLLT.

On Tuesday, November 21st, Frenchman Bay Conservancy, Maine Coast Heritage Trust, and DLLT are co-hosting a screening at The Grand in Ellsworth.  Tickets are free, and the show begins at 7 pm.

On Tuesday, December 12th, DLLT and Maine Coast Heritage Trust are co-hosting a screening at Washington County Community College (WCCC) in Calais.  Tickets are free, and the show begins at 6 pm.

Following both screenings, there will be an interactive panel discussion of local conservationists, with a question and answer session.  If you can’t make either of these screenings, there will be more happening across Maine this fall and winter.  For more information, please contact DLLT at (207) 796 – 2100, or email
