Jennifer W. Grimm
Jenny grew up in New England. After graduating with a degree in International Development, she served as an agriculture volunteer in rural Sri Lanka with the Peace Corps. This experience showed her the ways deforestation impacts the lives of people in South Asia – particularly women. Jenny returned to the U.S. and worked for more than a decade to advance sustainable forest management in both North American and Asia. Her experience encompassed roles working for the Rockefeller Brothers Fund in NY, The Lyme Timber Company in NH, The Hancock Land Company in ME, the Tropical Forest Trust in Cambodia. Overall, Jenny has more than two decades of experience working at the nexus of conservation, community and culture. Jenny holds a Master of Forestry from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. She and her husband have three children and she is thrilled to have them grow up with the landscape of Maine as their playground. Her favorite aspect of her working at FLT is building a strong land trust and advancing conservation in the place she calls home.
Outreach and Education Coordinator
Kate was born in Connecticut but quickly moved to New Hampshire where she grew up and learned of her infatuation for hiking. Her passion for outdoor education began within her own company where she teaches mindfulness hikes. As a business owner of a creative education company for children, (Unwritten Roads), she has used her unique set of skills to create engaging programming for The Falmouth Land Trust. Katherine is a graduate of University of Maine at Farmington where she holds a BFA in Creative Writing and Education. She is the creative force behind The Falmouth Land Trust and enjoys connecting people in Falmouth to nature. Katherine spends her time thru-hiking the AT when she can with her dogs and writing outside.
Samantha Wolf (aka Sami) grew up in Vermont and holds a Msc in Conservation from Trinity College Dublin. She has been a Natural Science Educator with Chewonki and the Hurricane Island Foundation, has designed and installed solar thermal seasonal heating for organic greenhouses in Vermont, and built trails across Vermont and New Hampshire. She has worked closely with land trusts in Casco Bay to record, map, and manage habitat and trails along the coast. She is passionate about local food systems and intersectional environmental justice. Her favorite aspects of working with FLT include the opportunity to think critically about land use in Maine, engage with excited community members, and brainstorm with her creative and passionate co-workers.
Rebekah, a lifelong resident of Falmouth, has been involved with the Falmouth Land Trust in different capacities. Years ago, she was a board member in charge of membership, and most recently as administrative help in the FLT office. She feels fortunate to be involved in this capacity because she feels strongly about FLT’s mission. Rebekah spends her spare time jogging the roads of Falmouth and hiking FLT trails with her husband.
