"It's been a long journey bringing this project to fruition," said C.D. Armstrong, president of the Friends of Scarborough Marsh. "I take my hat off to the Gervais family for having the patience and vision to work with us to conserve their land. The major funding partners are to be saluted for their commitments, as well as the many volunteers and donors who made this project happen. Ultimately, the big winners are our kids and future generations who will have this land to enjoy in perpetuity."
A number of project partners made this effort possible, including the Gervais family of Scarborough, Friends of Scarborough Marsh, the Natural Resource Trustees for the Julie N Oil Spill, the Town of Scarborough, the Land for Maine's Future Program, the Scarborough Land Conservation Trust, the Davis Conservation Foundation, and Ducks Unlimited.
