Thank you Thursday to Maine Coast Heritage Trust

It’s Thank you Thursday. Today’s shout out of Mission love goes to the Maine Coast Heritage Trust (MCHT). The MCHT mission statement is that they conserve and steward Maine’s coastal lands and islands for their renowned scenic beauty, ecological value, outdoor recreational opportunities, and contribution to community well-being. MCHT provides statewide conservation leadership through its work with land trusts, coastal communities and other partners.

MCHT and the Maine Seacoast Mission’s EdGE program have been partnering for over nine years to bring outdoor recreational opportunities to students in Washington County.

Over the years, the programming has ranged from hiking during the afterschool program, weekend activities, outing clubs, and opportunities to explore the MCHT preserves during summer camps. The MCHT stewards that work with the students have always been great at sharing their love of nature with the students.

Thank you to all the MCHT stewards who have been involved in helping bring the appreciation of the outdoors to the children of Washington County.

NORTHEAST HARBOR, ME — It’s Thank you Thursday. Today’s shout out of Mission love goes to The Outer Islands Teaching & Learning Collaborative (TLC). The TLC is one of the many supports offered by The Island Institute, a non-profit organization based in Rockland, Maine.

The TLC brings students and teachers together from one- and two-room island schools in Maine and Massachusetts. The TLC excels at creating a virtual classroom where students meet for grade focused learning, student council meetings, weekly exercise groups, and a wide variety of super fun social events. The TLC also hosts off island field trips and provides resources for island teachers, many of whom teach in isolation of other educators.

TLC staff Robin Chernow and Yvonne Thomas and the Mission’s Director of Island Outreach and Chaplain Douglas Cornman collaborate throughout the school year to support one others’ work with students and teachers.

Thanks Robin, Yvonne, and the TLC for your unwavering, creative, and ingenious support of island kids, teachers, and communities. You’re awesome!
