Hope Rowan

Hope Rowan likes looking under seaweed, mucking around in dirt, and studying maps. She has spent the past fifteen years creating, designing, and teaching children about maps as a certified Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Professional. Her first tent camping in Maine was in a crib and she was introduced to the trails of Acadia from her father’s shoulders. Hope’s vacation experiences in Acadia led her to attend the College of the Atlantic where she received an advanced degree in Human Ecology. Now she lives on Mount Desert Island with Acadia National Park as her backyard.
