The Presenting Sponsor of this years 5K Run for Conservation is Penobscot Investment Management Co., Inc. Their generous support is helping us make this year’s race our most successful one to date! Since its founding over 25 years ago, Penobscot Investment has been deeply invested in local communities throughout Massachusetts. “We are proud to support Wildlands Trust as donors and volunteers,” says Doug Hart, Co-Founder of Penobscot Investment and current Chairman of the Wildlands Trust Board of Directors. “I get great satisfaction out of helping the staff pursue the mission of this important regional land trust. The Run for Conservation is a wonderful way to bring staff, supporters, and friends together to demonstrate first-hand how important it is to preserve and enjoy our natural resources.” Doug is taking his support for Wildlands Trust one step further by running in this year’s race with Team Wildlands!
Cap Kane, Co-Founder of Penobscot Investment, is also running this year’s race for Penobscot and he echoes Doug’s sentiment. “I am participating in the Run for Conservation for the simple reason that all of us on the Penobscot team believe deeply in the need for open space and the conservation of the natural heritage of Massachusetts.” The firm’s management has a long history of committing its time and resources to the leading environmental organizations throughout the region, and Wildlands Trust is proud to call them our Presenting Sponsor!
