A Partnership Approach to Forest Land Conservation in Kennebec County, Maine

May 1, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

Presenters from the Kennebec Woodland Partnership:
Amanda Mahaffey, Kennebec Woodland Partnership Program Consultant
Morten Moesswilde, Maine Forest Service Midcoast District Forester
Andy Shultz, Maine Forest Service Landowner Outreach Forester

The Kennebec Woodland Partnership is a county-based initiative launched in 2009 to provide tools and strategies to help landowners make informed decisions about their woodlands and ensure a sustainable future for the county's forests.

The Partnership was formed out of common interests and an awareness that Kennebec County's local economy, wood products markets, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, water quality, and quality of life all depend largely on the county's approximately 374,000 acres of woodland. We envision a culture of conservation in which people support, enhance, appreciate, celebrate, and benefit from Kennebec woodlands and all the values they provide.

Join us for this U.S. Forest Service Landscape Stewardship Webinar to learn about the Kennebec Woodland Partnership's successes and challenges:
• How did this partnership form, and how do we keep attracting partners?
• What are some of the tools, strategies, and projects that we employ to achieve our goals?
• How do we remain effective on a landscape scale and meet our State's forest action plan?
