Avid naturalist and photographer Tom Lawrence has been a resident of Mount Desert Island for 30 years. A biologist, geologist and outdoor educator, Tom is an enthusiastic instructor with the ability to tie together the beauty and science of Acadia. The carriage roads of Acadia have always been a special interest of Tom’s since his first visit. Prior to the roads restoration in the early 1990s Tom volunteered to help identify erosional issues and bolster support for the cause with public presentations on the history of this natural resource. He also published a series of maps for cyclist and hikers to navigate the road system.
