Meet Logan Parker, MLRC Community Engagement Coordinator
The MLRC is pleased to announce that Logan Parker has been promoted to the position of Community Engagement Coordinator. Logan will be responsible for the daily operations of the MLRC and the management of the MLRC’s web activities. Logan will also be charged with event logistics, outreach activities, building management, and will be out collecting water quality data on the Belgrade Lakes this spring.
Logan has worked at the Maine Lakes Resource Center since May 2013 when he was hired as a seasonal, environmental docent. When the summer ended and the other interns headed back to school, Logan was asked to stay on part-time as an educator. Over the last year and a half, Logan has worked on increasing the MLRC’s social media following, taught natural history lessons in area schools, and created this very website!
Logan is thrilled to be given the opportunity to work for the MLRC full-time and has many plans to engage the community, in and out of the center, over the next year. This summer he will educate MLRC visitors about the water quality research underway in the Belgrade Lakes and will spend some time documenting the conservation efforts made by the MLRC and its partners throughout the watershed.
When off the clock, Logan spends most of his time photographing wildlife, birding, kayaking, and hiking, and hopes to start gardening this year. He is a member of Maine Audubon and the LakeSmart Coordinator for the Belgrade Lakes Association.
Stop in at the MLRC gallery to meet Logan and learn about all that’s happening at MLRC this year!
