In It Together

Posted by | December 30, 2020 | Filed under: Opinion

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.


A year like 2020 required speed and endurance, from science and society, didnt it? Together, we all had to go fast and go far—and its not even over yet. To make it through the coming months will require all the reserves weve got.

Please consider the Wells Reserve at Laudholm your reserve, a protected place of beauty, truth, and wonder. Here we continue the reserves long journey of coastal science, environmental education, and conservation, together with you.

Staff and volunteers are going to spend the winter together outdoors rebuilding trails and indoors working on projects like lobster research, new online education programs, and local land preservation and habitat resilience efforts. Your year-end donations strengthen that work. 

On behalf of the Wells Reserves staff, colleagues, volunteers, flora, and fauna, thank you for your support. We look forward to meeting you here again soon, on snowy walks, or with the greening spring, or in a grateful summer. Together, we will go far.

Ps. Go to to hear how Maines DaPonte String Quartet played together, but still apart, at Laudholm this year. Please help beauty persist in the world; please support this beautiful old place, and its new work, with your annual gift of today.
