Maine Mountain Collaborative

The Mountain Conservancy convened a group of individuals representing the major conservation organizations in the mountains of Maine.

These include:

  • Alan Hutchinson and Karin Tilberg, The Forest Society of Maine
  • Bob Perschel and Alec Giffen, The New England Forestry Foundation
  • Wolfe Tone, The Trust for Public Land
  • Bryan Wentzell, The Appalachian Mountain Club
  • Lloyd Griscom, a board member of the High Peaks Alliance
  • Dick Fecteau, conservation advocate and Appalachian Trail steward
  • Barbara Vickery, The Nature Conservancy

The goal of the Collaborative is to increase the capacity for conservation in the Western Maine mountains and specifically in the area designated as the Northern Appalachian Forest Corridor for protection of wildlife from climate change.
