Our Parks, Our Future: An Evening with David Evans Shaw & Shawn Gorman

January 31, 2017 - Hannaford Hall, Abromson Center

Program beings at 5pm, doors open at 4:30pm

Mainers value the natural world as both a driver of economic growth and something to be enjoyed by the community. Research reinforces what we all know intuitively—that time in nature provides us with a range of emotional, cognitive, and psychological benefits. It should come as no surprise, then, that Maine leads the way when it comes to innovation and investment in our national parks. 

We cordially invite you to join us for an engaging evening to kick off Corporate Partners in 2017, including: 

  • A fireside chat with David Evans Shaw, founder of Idexx Laboratories, and Shawn Gorman, L.L. Bean’s board chairman, about their transformational investments and why the national parks are essential
  • An engaging and interactive discussion about innovation and solutions coming out of Maine, and how we as individuals and business leaders can support engagement in national and state parks.
