Glen Mittelhauser ’89 celebrates 20 years as founding director of the Maine Natural History Observatory

Glen Mittelhauser ’89 founded Maine Natural History Observatory in 2003. He has served as the managing editor for The Northeastern Naturalist and The Southeastern Naturalist, been appointed external graduate faculty at The University of Maine and served on three graduate student committees there, and served as the project coordinator for the Maine Bird Atlas.

Maine Natural History Observatory’s mission is to improve the understanding of natural resources in Maine by compiling historic information and implementing inventory and monitoring efforts of Maine’s natural history. The Observatory specializes in collecting, interpreting, and maintaining datasets crucial for understanding changes in Maine’s plant and wildlife populations. They are committed to filling data gaps for Maine’s least understood species and creating a legacy of data for use in nature conservation, land use policy decisions, and expanding scientific knowledge.

Congrats on 20 years!
