e pluribus, laudholm

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, its the only thing that ever has.

Margaret Mead

Weve always felt that here at the Wells Reserve at Laudholm. This is a protected place saved, invigorated, and advanced by thoughtful, committed citizens, born not of tragedy but of opportunity. For four decades, the can-do, all-hands-on-deck spirit has thrived here, creating a unique and treasured spot on the coast of Maine.

You can see it in the pages of this newsletter. Whether its staff and volunteers pulling together to root out, or at least identify, invasive species on land and in the sea, or dozens of students, parents, and educators making a mosaic to grace our gallery, from many efforts there arises one Laudholm. It is a collaboration that has passed the test of time, thanks to folkslike youwho have continued to stay involved and engaged.

This joint effort, the Wells Reserve at Laudholm, will officially turn 40 next year. Middle age, Ive found, is a time of unavoidable but essential reflection, self-questioning, planning, and possibility. So let it be with your Laudholm next year as well. In our Spring 2024 Watermark, and even before then, youll be hearing from us, but wed love to hear from you too. Tell us: What makes this special place world-changing for YOU?
