Betsy Ham

Director of Land Protection


Regions: Southern Maine, Midcoast, Mount Desert Island, Downeast, Topsham
Department: Land Protection

“Before I started at MCHT I tried my hand at conservation through regional planning, transportation planning, advocating, and education. Each approach has value but your hard work can be undone overnight. I love the permanent nature of what we do. When we acquire land it’s there for people to enjoy forever.”

Betsy is a native Mainer who has had the privilege of working to conserve land for MCHT since 2002. She works on land protection coast-wide with an 11-person land protection team.
