The redesigned site is now live – and lively – with images that bring clarity to our mission and an energized focus on our properties.
We’ve been gifted with the talents and passions of the team at VONT for this website re-launch; Cape Elizabeth residents Tom Gale and Tim Blackstone helped lead the project.
Tim explains their goals. “We wanted to create an engaging experience to inspire participation, showcase the diversity and beauty of CELT lands, and encourage individuals to connect more deeply with each other and with nature. We organized the site to prioritize convenient access to the most requested information, and to deliver a rich visual experience, whether from a phone, tablet, or computer. Trail and property information was deepened, and education and volunteer opportunities were made more visible and easier to engage with.”
Tom helped guide the website toward a more visual, more contemporary look. “Certain important information (events, news) had become challenging to manage for CELT staff and to find for site visitors. The new website provides more dynamic, up-to-date content on what’s happening on a week-to-week basis.”
Tom serves on our Lands Committee and believes that impassioning our youngest residents is especially important. “We have a finite window when the opportunity to preserve these iconic lands will be available to us, so it’s critical that we move with a sense of urgency now.”
Thank you VONT!!
We hope you find that the new site encourages you to become more involved and more connected with the very special properties you’ve helped us conserve and steward. Let us know what you think by emailing Patty Renaud.
