The Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust (MMLT) is pleased to announce that Howard Clifford will be the guest speaker for their Annual General Meeting of members this month. Mr. Clifford served as MMLT’s second President from 2010 to 2019, and since then, as a member of the Emeritus Council. He has had an impressive career in mental health and child care, but his avocation has always been a love for the wilderness.
MMLT negotiated its first Conservation Easement Agreement with the Clifford Family in February 2009 on an exceptional pristine wilderness property near Flower Station, formerly known as the Alba Wilderness School, and now referred to as Blueberry Mountain at cliffLAND. It is the second largest legally protected area in Lanark County, after Murphy’s Point Provincial Park, and is also one of Seven Wonders of Lanark County. Blueberry Mountain is climbed by over 2000 visitors each year! Mr. Clifford has lived here for the past 42 years.
During his talk, Mr. Clifford will reflect on how his life has been blessed and changed through experiences at cliffLAND and his involvement with MMLT – the insights gained, the convictions that became unshakable, and the vision that continues to provide meaning and hope.
MMLT’s AGM and Presentation will be held on the evening of March 23rd at the MMLT office – 10970 Hwy 7, Carleton Place, ON. More details, including how to register, can be found at mmlt.ca/events or by calling 613-253-2722.
