This marks the third in the 2022 series of quarterly presentations by professionals in a field. Since its founding in 2004, Maine Woods Forever has convened a series of roundtables every year on diverse subjects relevant to Maine’s forests. These roundtables have included over 100 organizations. In the context of changes that are occurring in land ownership and land management in Maine, the roundtables raise awareness, spark ideas leading to positive action, and encourage partnerships. These non-political gatherings fill a void by bringing together diverse interests around the table to discuss, inspire, and pursue collaborative conservation outcomes for the Maine Woods. We look forward to seeing you for this most interesting, though not well understood topic. Tom Mullin President, Maine Woods Forever
