On land conservation: “Conservation isn’t about protecting a nostalgic idea of the past but creating a vibrant future where more people have better access to the inspirational and life-sustaining gifts of the natural world. It’s an honor to be entrusted with guiding this effort forward. I feel like I’m standing on the shoulders of giants, building on the work of the visionaries who started Maine Coast Heritage Trust and extending their legacy into the future.”
On the job: Tim looks out for MCHT staff, making certain his colleagues have the skills and tools needed to do their best work. Guided by the belief that all who love Maine have a stake in its natural heritage, Tim considers how MCHT fits into the bigger picture of Maine culture and society.
