Tim TrumbauerOur new Executive Director and Lake Warden, Tim Trumbauer, officially started on April 24!

Originally from the Chesapeake Region, Tim grew up on the banks of the Chester River fishing, sailing, and swamping his family’s rowboat. With these formative experiences, Tim has dedicated his career to protecting and restoring natural waters. Tim most recently worked as the Director of Water Conservation and Communications at neighboring Midcoast Conservancy in Edgecomb. Before joining Midcoast Conservancy, he served as the Chester Riverkeeper and watershed manager in Chestertown, Maryland, and prior to that worked for a sustainability consulting firm outside of Washington, DC for nearly a dozen years.

Tim has held many leadership positions with a diverse set of community organizations, including the Maine Coastal Observing Alliance, Waterkeepers Chesapeake, and the Friends of Rosin Creek. In addition to an honors degree in environmental science from the University of Maryland Baltimore County, Tim holds a certificate in not-for-profit leadership from the University of Delaware, and is a certified Master Naturalist. His 20 years of professional experience include water quality monitoring, environmental restoration, environmental policy and advocacy, communications, community engagement, strategic planning, and organizational leadership.

Tim wishes to share his excitement to work with the Megunticook community on all sorts of watershed projects, and would like to share a thank you to the hiring committee and the Board of Directors, and especially to previous Executive Director and Lake Warden Aaron Bailey, for offering such generous support as he gets started. Tim can be reached at tim@megunticook.org.

Welcome Tim!
