Carrie Deegan is the Reservation Stewardship & Engagement Director for the Forest Society. She has worked for the Forest Society since 2008, when she was hired to coordinate the volunteer Land Steward Program. Before that, she lived in New Hampshire's upside down sister-state, Vermont, where she worked as an Environmental Planner for the Town of Williston, a program coordinator for the Winooski Natural Resources Conservation District, and taught biology courses at the Community College of Vermont.
Carrie completed a Master of Science degree at the University of British Columbia in 1999, studying grizzly bear mortality in the border region surrounding Waterton Lakes and Glacier National Parks. After several years a field biologist, living out of a tent or (when lucky) a bunk house and not typically showering on a weekly basis, she was happy to move on to the relatively civilized field of land conservation & stewardship!
Carrie lives in New London, NH with her family and when not working can be found dragging her kids on crazy outdoor adventures or studying moths, mushrooms, or other oddities of the natural world.
