New Faces at the Wilderness Trust

New board member CC White

We’re so pleased to have a couple of new people on our team! Cynthia Pope White (who goes by CC) joined the board of directors in late summer. CC is an artist with a life-long reverence for wild nature. She lives close to nature with her husband David on a working homestead of 118 acres in Center Sandwich, NH. With a group of other committed activists, she worked for eight years to expand the Sandwich Range Wilderness in New Hampshire. The work of many dedicated people eventually resulted in the New England Wilderness Act of 2006, which created over 80,000 acres of federally designated Wilderness in New Hampshire and Vermont. CC lives with conscious intention in her daily life, seeking to perceive the myriad connections that bind us to place and to the larger world. She loves to knit, read, paint in her studio, and be outdoors in the winter.  She brings a thoughtful and dedicated spirit to the board.

Administration & Finance Director Cathleen Maine

Cathleen Maine is Northeast Wilderness Trust’s new Administration and Finance Director. Cathleen comes to the Trust with more than 20 years experience working in the nonprofit arena, most recently as Development Director for The Women’s Collective, an organization based out of Washington, D.C. As a volunteer, she has worked with people living with AIDS, as a literacy mentor, and on many community projects in Cabot, VT, where she lives with her husband and daughter. Her family enjoys exploring the wild places around their home—Nichols Ledge (post peregrine falcon nesting time) is a favorite spot. Cathleen is a former teacher, speaks Japanese, and is a huge fan of good food and good murder mysteries. Northeast Wilderness Trust is already reaping the rewards of her organizational skills, administrative experience, and can-do attitude.

Please join us in warmly welcoming CC and Cathleen!
