This year, we’re excited to host Mary Ellen Lemay, Landowner Engagement Director at the Aspetuck Land Trust. She will discuss the Aspetuck Land Trust Green Corridor Project which aims to increase the scale and rate of land conservation within the Aspetuck footprint. This project will hopefully become a model for communities in our region to balance conservation efforts with economic and environmental health throughout the urban, suburban, and rural settings across Fairfield County.
Mary Ellen Lemay is the Landowner Engagement Director for the Aspetuck Land Trust (Westport, Fairfield, Weston, Easton, Monroe CT), Pollinator Pathway Facilitator for the Hudson to Housatonic Regional Conservation Partnership, and also a member of the Connecticut Native Plants Working Group.
She earned her BS in Biology from Fairfield University, her MBA from Fordham University, and her Masters in Environmental Management from Yale University School of The Environment.
She is the former Trumbull Land Trust president and currently the Chairwoman of the Trumbull Conservation Commission, a CT DEEP Certified Master Wildlife Conservationist, and on the Board of the Merritt Parkway Conservancy.
