Events for 2013
A Shared Passion for Land Preservation
Monday, April 8, 1 pm
Admission: $15; members of Friends of CCMA admitted free
“Preserving Land on Cape Cod,” is a presentation by Jaci Barton, executive director of Barnstable Land Trust, and Mark H. Robinson, executive director of the Compact of Cape Cod Conservation Trusts.
Barton and Robinson have been involved with land preservation on Cape Cod since the 1980s and are the original directors of their respective organizations. Together they will speak about the tools available for a successful land protection project. They will also show images of some of the beautiful properties they’ve helped preserve for future generations.
Commonly known as BLT, Barnstable Land Trust is a private, nonprofit, membership-supported organization founded in 1983 to acquire and conserve open space and natural resources in the Town of Barnstable, including wetlands, woodlands and wildlife. Currently, BLT is the steward of 1,022 acres.
The Compact of Cape Cod Conservation Trusts provides technical assistance to the 22 local and regional land trusts operating on the Cape. This includes fundraising, negotiations with landowners, land management, and coordination between the state and municipalities on open-space projects. The Compact serves as a national model of regional cooperation for land trusts.
Robinson, who also currently serves on the Cape Cod National Seashore Advisory Commission, received a lifetime achievement award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, in 2009. Barton, who served as a Barnstable Town Councilor for 10 years (including in the capacities of president and vice president), received the New England Conservation Award from the Trust for Public Land in 1995, among many other honors. She is currently on the Board of Directors of The Compact of Cape Cod Conservation Trust.
Reservations are recommended and may be made by calling the museum at (508) 385-4477, ext. 15. Refreshments will be served following the talk.
