On June 29th, 2020, Kat Deely of the Frenchman Bay Conservancy (FBC) led a tour of a recently acquired FBC property for a group of Wabanaki leaders. This field trip helped the group begin to discuss what Wabanaki input on land trust properties might include, how resources on land trust properties might be managed and harvested, and figure out key questions to ask and answer around harvesting needs, rights and processes. The Wabanaki Task Force Planning Group plans to talk about such harvesting possibilities as part of the Scope of Work for the future appointed entity, and this field trip helped open and frame the conversation.
