Two new Board members are bringing new talents to our very wonderful and dedicated Board.
Tyler DeAngelis, a Maine native and Bowdoin alum (’15), teaches biology, physics, and earth science at Baxter Academy for Technology and Science and has a passion for teaching place-based courses. He is very familiar with the Preserve, having completed a summer fellowship for Brunswick Topsham Land Trust that brought him to the Preserve almost daily. Tyler has a passion for the outdoors and has spent countless hours appreciating the natural world of Midcoast Maine. Tyler brings a fresh perspective, experience with high school students and learning, knowledge of environmental sciences, technology skills, and a thirst for adventure to the CREA Board.
Tim Paul, marketing manager at The Nature Conservancy in Maine, works every day to connect people and nature so they may thrive together. Tim came to TNC after more than 20 years as a marketer for L.L.Bean, where he played an integral role in the company’s successful retail store growth from a single location in Freeport to twenty stores in nine states. Tim has been an Appalachian Trail Thru Hiker, rock climber, mountaineer, fly fisherman, and canoe and kayak paddler. Today he and his wife Kathy live in Topsham and keep very busy raising their twin boys who have enjoyed many sessions of CREA Summer Day Camp in recent years. Tim brings great outdoor credentials, a passion for the mission and keen sensibility for explaining it to the larger world, and a parental perspective on CREA programs to the Board.
