Midcoast Conservancy is delighted to have Morganne Price and Anna Blank join the staff this month. Both bring a wealth of experience, talent and passion to the organization.

Morganne Price grew up in Waldoboro exploring the woods in her backyard. She moved to the Pacific Northwest for a brief time to work for the Forest Service and also as a fisheries observer in Alaska, collecting data on commercial fishing vessels.

Price joins Midcoast Conservancy as the Medomak River Watershed Manager; in that role, she will help coordinate water and land conservation work in the Medomak watershed and beyond.

She is thrilled to be back in the Midcoast and is looking forward to using her community ties combined with her experiences from away to benefit her hometown watershed. Price says, “I am excited to be working for Midcoast Conservancy as they are an organization that sees the value in both a working waterfront and a healthy ecosystem and community.”

As its new Administrative Manager, Anna Blank supports Midcoast Conservancy to design and maintain efficient office systems and policies, manage office files and records, hire and on-board new employees, and maintain accurate accounts. Before joining Midcoast Conservancy full time, Blank served as a Development Intern this spring. 

Blank comes to Midcoast Conservancy with a background in agriculture and environmental policy. Passionate about good food and healthy communities, she came to Midcoast Maine in 2017 to work on an organic vegetable farm. After five years of farming, and recently completing a BS in Environmental Policy, she sees joining Midcoast Conservancy as the start of an exciting new chapter. Blank says, "The opportunity to work for an organization whose mission I whole-heartedly believe in and feel deeply connected to is very exciting! The lands and waters of Midcoast Maine are my home. I connect with the forests, fields and rivers every single day, and want to be an active participant in the efforts to protect them. I look forward to growing and learning with the team at Midcoast Conservancy."
