Cheryl Daigle, Communications Manager

About > People > Cheryl Daigle



A lifelong New Englander, Cheryl has worked with national and regional conservation organizations and state and federal agencies to communicate science and natural resource management issues to diverse audiences for over 20 years. Through exploring the intersections of science, art and culture in Maine’s diverse landscape, she earned her Masters of Science in Ecology and Environmental Sciences at the University of Maine in 2002. Completion of her Bachelors of Science at the University of Massachusetts provided her a strong foundation in communications and the human dimensions of wildlife conservation. Past communications and outreach work with the Maine Lakes Society, Penobscot River Restoration Trust, Maine Sea Grant, the Forest Society of Maine and The Nature Conservancy in Maine and the Southern Berkshires, has impressed upon her the importance of community in crafting sustainable conservation initiatives. A lover of rivers and all things wild, she enjoys paddling, photography, hiking, poetry, and exploring new places with family and friends.
