Sippican Lands Trust News

The Sippican Lands Trust (SLT) is proud to announce that local resident, Robin Shields, has been hired as its new Executive Director.  She and her family recently relocated back to Marion after living 13 years in nearby Fairhaven.  Robin brings energy and enthusiasm, a degree in the field of natural resource management, and a strong connection to the community to her work at SLT.  These qualities will serve her well as she strengthens and implements the organization’s shift from a purely land acquisition based focus to stewardship and community outreach programs.

Please join us, and meet Robin, on Wednesday March 27th at our Open Annual Meeting.  It will be held at 5:30pm at the SLT office located at 354 Front Street (next to Uncle Jons Coffee).  There will be a brief business meeting followed by a presentation: “Moving from Acquisition to Stewardship: Connecting Communities to Conservation Lands” by Jennifer DuBois and Diane Lang, both from the Trustees of Reservations.  Wine and cheese will be served.

In addition, the Sippican Lands Trust will be hosting its 3rd annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday March 30, 2013 at 10am at the organization’s Pierson’s Woods property, off of Point Rd.  Come join the fun!  Hunt for eggs, follow a story-walk and enjoy this beautiful property with your kids!  Thanks to the Marion Recreation Department for donating the eggs!  This event is a free public event.
