Tamara Whitmore
Manager, Fresh Water Education Program

Originally from Pennsylvania, Tamara Whitmore came to Maine “as quickly as she could”, first to work at Sugarloaf ski mountain from 1995 to 97, and then permanently in 2004 after an eight year stint in Vermont. First during a one-year Americorps service member program with the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, followed by sixteen years working for Friends of the Cobbossee Watershed in central Maine, Tamara developed a passion for educating others about the critical need to protect Maine’s aquatic resources. 

Tamara is thrilled to partner with Maine Lakes to help support individuals, organizations, and schools in using Maine’s freshwater ecosystems as an integrative context for learning, and to build a network that aids and promotes this work. Tamara lives in Gardiner, Maine with her husband, Shawn, and their furry and finned family. A true Pisces, no day is complete without connecting to water and the best days are when she can help others make their own connections.
