Executive Director Welcomes Daughter

March 6, 2024

Executive Director of the Downeast Lakes Land Trust, Nicole Nygren, and husband Jeremiah welcomed the arrival of their baby girl on February 22. Both mother and daughter are healthy and strong. Nicole will be working on a part-time schedule for a period of maternity leave. The Trust’s operations will be in the capable hands of the staff with additional support being provided by Al and Sue LaPlante.

The LaPlante’s will arrive on or about March 21 and will assume the roles of interim managers at the DLLT. They both possess impressive resumes in leadership and outdoor skills. Sue is a former Board member and Al has been active in many committees and organizations in the area. We are lucky to have them in place at this special time.
