Kirk Gentalen is the regional stewardship manager for mid-coast Maine for Maine Coast Heritage Trust and writes about the ecology of the area in his Nature Bummin’ blog. A self-described nature observer, one of his passions is tracking wildlife especially in winter. He can read their tracks like the news and figure out what the critters have been up to.

Kirk takes care of MCHT conserved lands on Vinalhaven and North Haven islands. That means taking care of trail and forestry needs and monitoring easements. He connects with island residents through environmental education, volunteering, and outreach programs. He also compiles wildlife sightings on Vinalhaven in his entertaining blog, Vinalhaven Sightings.
