The Downeast Lakes Land Trust (DLLT) is pleased to announce the hire of Mrs. Brittany Mauricette as the new Community Forest Manager. Brittany is a native of Rockland, Maine, and a graduate of the University of Maine’s School of Forest Resources. Having worked previously on industrial forestlands, she is most recently employed as a forester with the Otsego Conservation District in Gaylord, Michigan. Brittany’s approach to conservation forestry emphasizes the health of the whole ecosystem, an outlook that pairs well with DLLT’s Focus Species Forestry Plan, which uses timber harvest prescriptions to create habitat for specific “focus species” that act as umbrellas for the conservation of other species with similar habitat needs.
“Brittany will bring energy, technical expertise, and a commitment to exemplary forest management to DLLT’s community forestry program. We look forward to welcoming her in Grand Lake Stream and having her join our efforts in the Downeast Lakes region,” says DLLT Executive Director David Montague.
Brittany’s employment with DLLT will begin in mid-June.
