Downeast Lakes Land Trust is pleased to welcome Tanya Rucosky as our new Education and Communications Manager. A native of the northeast, and an experienced educator and leader, Tanya has traveled widely. She developed and led a water quality education, community outreach, and restoration program in a major watershed in Australia, where she literally “wrote the book”: a K-12 curriculum and activity guide for teachers and natural resource managers.
Tanya will be a great addition to our organization, and will be working to build our education program through activities for residents and visitors, and strong relationships with local schools. We seek to build stronger connections between residents, visitors, and the natural resources that sustain the economy, while educating future generations and building their appreciation for the natural environment and sustainable use of forest resources.
Tanya has just arrived in Grand Lake Stream, having moved from Pennsylvania with her family. Please welcome Tanya, Bear, and their kids Adam (age 15) and Vivian (age 10). They are all happy to be here, and eager to meet more people from the community.
