Author Announcement: Tim Caverly

Tim Caverly has spent his life in Maine’s outdoors. Growing up shadowing his father who was a fire warden with the Maine Forest Service and his brother, a ranger in Baxter State Park, it was natural for him to seek a career in the outdoors. Tim is originally from Skowhegan, Maine and has a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Maine at Machias.

While in college, Tim began working as a ranger at Sebago Lake State Park for the State Parks and Recreation Commission. After Sebago, he continued his employment with the Department of Conservation with assignments as a manager of Aroostook and Cobscook Bay State Parks as well as a regional supervisor of the Allagash Region, which included the Allagash Wilderness Waterway and the Penobscot River Corridor. Tim was supervisor of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway for eighteen years.

In 1999, Tim retired from the Department after a 32-year career, and became director of Maine Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER). Tim resides in Millinocket, and now works in the Millinocket School System. He enjoys raising Golden Retrievers, and sharing stories about the Allagash.
