BTLT Reports Preliminary Survey Results

This summer, we asked the community to give input on BTLT’s work. Angela Twitchell, BTLT’s Executive Director, reports that the response was very strong and overwhelmingly positive. “Members and nonmembers alike expressed a real interest in our work and had many valuable suggestions on how to broaden and deepen our impact,” Twitchell said.

The survey, intended to gauge community members’ knowledge of BTLT’s work and to learn how it can serve its members and community better, will take BTLT several months to analyze and begin to incorporate into its future plans. Survey Working Group leader Peter Simmons observes, however, that “conserving land is clearly our members’ highest priority, Crystal Spring Farm is our most popular property, and the Farmers’ Market at Crystal Spring Farm is our most popular program. Beyond that, we have much to learn from the survey about how to communicate better with our members and the public, how to get them out onto BTLT’s less well known public access properties, and how we might serve other community needs identified in the survey, like addressing climate change, increasing access for underserved members of our community, and providing more services for families and youth.”

BTLT plans to present a detailed report on the survey at the annual meeting on November 17 and to continue conversations with community organizations to determine how BTLT might partner with them to connect more area residents and underserved groups with BTLT’s conserved properties.

BTLT in the News, “Spring inspiration at Midcoast land trusts from Brunswick to Lincoln County”

Spring inspiration at Midcoast land trusts from Brunswick to Lincoln County

April 26, 2018

Local land trusts, including the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust, are featured in the Coastal Journal for some exciting spring happenings. Read on to see how you can get involved this season!

There is no shortage of areas to explore along the Midcoast this spring, but local land trusts offer more than just trails. Each organization has its own focus and schedule of events coming up. Some are out on the trails while others are workshops focused on preparations for spring, like how to start your garden.

You may know the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust from its role in the outdoor farmers market at Crystal Springs Farm in the summer and on the town green in the spring and fall. I am eagerly waiting for the first spring market day on May 5.

Following on the gardening theme, BTLT also puts on the impressive Taking Root Plant Sale on May 26, where you can simultaneously provision your garden with lovely native plants and support the land trust’s efforts.

And, if you don’t have your own garden to tend, but love digging in the dirt, one of the many volunteer opportunities possible with BTLT is to help at the Tom Settlemire Community Garden. The garden is used for educational programs and also provides produce for local food banks, in addition to having private plots for those interested in having their own patch. You can find out more at www.btlt.org/volunteer.
