“I’ve seen how experiences in nature change people’s perspectives, how it humbles them. We don’t know what’s on the horizon, but having these conserved places will be important.”

Bob has been partnering with Acadia National Park, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and local land trusts in Eastern Hancock County for the past 15 years to preserve lands that are vital to communities of humans and critters alike. He is elated that his job involves spending time on the water and in the woods with people who share a love the coast of Maine.
