Creating a Culture of Caring
Kennebunkport Conservation Trust (KCT) has provided field trips for the local elementary school for 10 years. Each grade adopts a different land trust property, learning its unique environmental and historical landscape during visits two to three times a year.
KCT expanded it to include other elementary schools in the area, summer camps for middle schoolers, high school programming for the Alternative Education Class, and even college studies.
