Sandi McRae Duchesne

Sandi McRae Duchesne likes nothing better than an adventure in the Maine woods – even during the height of black fly season. She spent many memorable summers working as a wilderness camp counselor and a Registered Maine Guide for whitewater rafting, and her mid-life career change to civil engineering and planning has allowed her the privilege of being paid to explore the length and breadth of Washington County. Sandi has been active in many environmental and active-lifestyle organizations in Maine, including nearly 20 years as a board member and officer of the Penobscot Valley Chapter of Maine Audubon, six years on the board of the Bicycle Coalition of Maine, and her current service as President of the Greater Pushaw Lake Association. Along with her husband, Bob, she has planned and led numerous field trips for birders, photographers, and nature lovers in the United States and Canada. Sandi and Bob spend their rare weekends at home in their log cabin on Pushaw Lake, where the loons sing them to sleep.
