Biography

Tamara is responsible for working with staff to help design and lead projects that blend the needs of local communities with natural resource conservation. Tamara’s work is focused on systems change at local, regional and statewide levels through her engagement with the Katahdin region, Sebago Clean Waters and Nature Based Education Consortium and through leading the Maine Chapter in development of a long-range plan to shift how we connect and engage people with our preserves.

Tamara is an environmental professional with more than 25 years of experience, and she enjoys and excels at fostering partnerships, designing for systems change and working collaboratively with the end goal of building healthy communities. Her past professional work includes developing and serving as the executive director of the Long Creek Watershed Management District, a unique collaboration of public and private entities including small and large businesses, government agencies and environmental non-profits; developing watershed management plans for lakes and urban impaired streams; and serving as a facilitator for 14 municipalities that work cooperatively to meet stormwater permitting requirements.

Tamara is committed to furthering environmental justice, and as a mom of two teenage daughters, she has a deep sense of our quickly changing world and the need to provide outdoor spaces to wander and replenish. Tamara received her B.S. in biology from Bates College.
