In service of connection to the land and justice for people, we advance the growth edge of the modern conservation movement.
- Strengthening organizations with technical services that will add capacity and expertise where needed, along with resources and opportunities for continued learning.
- Building a cohesive network of organizations by providing opportunities for networking and access to programs to engage and take action on a number of key issues. These opportunities result in partnerships within the conservation sector, and between conservation and broader community issues including climate resiliency, justice and equity, and community health.
- Being a catalyst and partner in transformational change for the conservation community where we will push the edges of what has always been and will lean into a conversation of what has not happened yet through partnership, commitment, and growth.
Southern Maine Conservation Collaborative’s theory of change is rooted in the idea that solutions forged together and in partnership are more lasting and effective. We serve to build connections within the environmental sector, and between conservation and broader community issues.
