Carolyn Shubert named Maine Lake Hero

A champion for water quality

Carolyn Shubert was recognized recently by Maine Lakes for her work as a champion for water quality in the Pemaquid River system.

As part of the organization’s 50th Anniversary celebration, Maine Lakes is “recognizing 50 Maine Lakes Heroes who have worked hard to keep our lakes and ponds clean and clear.”

Carolyn began working at Pemaquid Watershed Association in 2012. When PWA joined with DRA in 2019 to become Coastal Rivers, she transitioned to her current role as Land and Water Stewardship Manager. Her responsibilities have included coordinating volunteers, providing outreach, overseeing trail stewardship, and managing water quality programs such as swim beach monitoring, Invasive Plants Patrol, LakeSmart, and Courtesy Boat Inspections.

Carolyn gave notice of her resignation from Coastal Rivers earlier this spring, as she and her husband Captain Jack Shubert were making plans to sail across the Atlantic. Her last day with us was August 31. Unfortunately, the global pandemic has thrown a wrench in their travel plans, but we hope they will be able to embark on that adventure soon!
