Happy Summer from Monhegan! While we could definitely use more moisture, the Island is again awash with color, the headland vistas beckon, and the forest canopy of the Island’s northern half is bathed in summer solstice light.
Looking forward, we currently are updating our Forest Stewardship Plan, which we believe is central to thoughtfully establishing priorities and taking appropriate actions. In addition, we are refreshing our “look” through the Monhegan Associates logo contest described later in this newsletter. Further, we are selectively seeking greater synergies with mission consistent organizations beyond Monhegan where exchanging best practices and maintaining effective alliances make good sense. Lastly, while we ultimately were not able to retain a resident Forest Steward for 2016, our leadership will strive to add an appropriate resource to our team next year.
Our 400 plus acres of Wild Lands and Headlands await you and, as always, we sincerely appreciate you supporting us in perpetuating this special Island and its “simple, friendly way of life”.
President, Monhegan Associates
