MOUNT DESERT — Kathryn Strand has joined the Mount Desert Land & Garden Preserve as director of development and communications.

She will lead the preserve’s fundraising activities as the organization takes on more responsibilities with the recent gift of the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Garden from the estate of David Rockefeller Jr.

Rodney Eason, the preserve’s CEO, said Strand’s “strong background in donor cultivation and external communications allows us to grow these important areas of our operations.”

Strand worked for the past 10 years as director of alumni and stewardship at Berwick Academy in South Berwick.
