Strategic Goals

Goal 1: Enhance the public perception that Woodlawn is a resource to the whole community, and create opportunities for individuals and groups to participate in the Woodlawn experience as visitors and volunteers.

Goal 2: Expand Woodlawn’s programs and services in order to serve a growing and diverse audience base of new and repeat visitors to the Woodlawn estate.

Goal 3: Facilitate the work of the organization by ensuring it is well-run, has resources to meet its expanding needs, cares about its people, and is considered a worthwhile and enjoyable affiliation.

Goal 4: Preserve and protect Woodlawn’s resources (collections, buildings, grounds) and enhance them, as appropriate, to attract and appeal to current and new audiences.

Goal 5: Tell the stories of Woodlawn and the Hancock County Trustees of Public Reservations in a way that engages a range of audiences and reveals their important contributions to the history and culture of Hancock County and eastern Maine.

Goal 6: Using the historic legacy of the Hancock County Trustees of Public Reservations as a base, define an appropriate role for the Trustees in today’s world.
