Lia Morris - Executive Director

Contact: lia@teenstotrails.org

Lia Morris grew up in Southwest Harbor, as a daughter of a boat builder, with Acadia National Park and the surrounding waters as her playground. Her deep family immersion in the outdoors led her to an early passion of advocating for the natural environment.  She has spent over 22 years involved in the nonprofit sector as an intern, volunteer and employee. With an undergraduate degree in Environmental Conservation and Biology from UC Boulder and a graduate degree in Environmental Policy from Tufts University, Lia's educational background fueled her passions.  Lia comes most recently from the Environmental Studies Program at Colby College. She lives in the Waterville area with her husband and two children. Lia is thrilled to have joined a team that is working to foster a connection to the natural world for the next generation of environmental stewards.

Marlene Flaherty - Outreach and Projects VISTA

Contact: marlene@teenstotrails.org

Marlene grew up in Washington County, where there are more trees than people and endless opportunities to opt outside. She wanted to explore urban living and completed her undergraduate degree at Berkeley College in New York City. Studying Marketing and Management and working for a magazine- she found that her passion lies outside of the corporate and/or concrete sphere. She has spent the last 5 years working in the non-profit sector and serving as an AmeriCorps member/leader. National service provided her a platform to visit 42 of the 50 states and engage with communities. Working with Teens To Trails allows her to continue to serve and combine her focus areas of youth development, environmental stewardship, and community building.
