Letter: Conservation groups thank supporters
The Merrymeeting Conservation and Education Alliance would like to sincerely thank the community for the fantastic success of the first online auction. One-hundred sixty four items were auctioned off and over $24,000 was raised for the three partnering conservation organizations – the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust, the Cathance River Education Alliance, and the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust – to conserve land and to conduct nature-based education programs in the Merrymeeting Bay region.
We greatly appreciate the resounding support from the businesses and individuals who donated and solicited items to this year's auction, and we are already looking forward to next year's auction.
Becky Kolak, education coordinator
Kennebec Estuary Land Trust
