Meet Our Newest Director, Bill Hamilton
A lifelong resident of the area, Bill is a third-generation Master Maine Guide. His parents owned a set of sporting camps on Sysladobsis Lake in Lakeville, Maine. He grew up in the sporting life and knows the value of the special areas protected by the WWLT. “The way of life that we and visitors alike have enjoyed in these special places is worth protecting. The idea that I may be able to help protect the woods and waters of Eastern Maine and Western New Brunswick for current and future generations appeals to me,” said Hamilton.
Bill has worked protecting the natural resources of Maine for nearly 43 years. He began his career with the Maine Forest Service in 1979 and has risen through the ranks to his current position of Chief Forest Ranger of the Maine Forest Service. Bill has served on numerous regional and national working groups, and for the past 25 years, has been on the board of selectmen for the Town of Lee, Maine.
Bill and his wife Pam Amero Hamilton have a cottage on East Grand Lake. Their family built the original cottage in 1964, which they replaced in 2005. Beginning in the spring of 2022, Bill and Pam intend to spend much of their time at East Grand Lake.
