George Fields joins the staff as our first Associate Director in February 2014.  He was previously co-principal at a land surveying firm and the part-time Stewardship Director at Island Heritage Trust since 2008.  A professional geologist in Maine and New Hampshire, George has earned degrees from Southern Illinois University and North Carolina State University.  He has traveled within and outside the country conducting environmental and geophysical surveys for private and governmental agencies.  George has been in the Blue Hill Peninsula area for 10 years and currently lives in Deer Isle with his wife, Pam.  He loves hiking, canoeing, kayaking, traveling and working in the vegetable garden.  When asked about his new position, George responded, “I am excited about the varied nature of the properties that the Trust has protected to date and the expectation of what lies ahead.  It is beyond satisfying that I can play a small part in helping others experience and live in such a beautiful and bountiful landscape for years to come.”
