She ensures that people know about threats to public lands, opportunities for protection, and what they can do to make a difference. She’s also the editor of NRCM’s podcast. Carly’s love of Maine’s outdoors grew while she attended Bates College and worked at Acadia National Park for two summers as a Leave No Trace educator with Friends of Acadia. She graduated from Bates College with a B.A. in anthropology and a minor in French, having researched topics including the role of women mountain guides in Morocco and the cultural and linguistic presence of French in Maine. Before joining NRCM, she taught English in Luxembourg through the Fulbright Fellowship Program. Carly enjoys hiking, running, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing the piano. Her favorite Maine place is the summit of Sargent Mountain in Acadia National Park.
