Karen Beattie

Karen is the Nantucket Conservation Foundation's (NCF) Vice President of Science and Stewardship. NCF is a private, non-profit land trust that owns, protects and manages over 9,000 acres of conservation land on Nantucket Island and hosts an active ecological research and land stewardship program with 4 year-round ecologists. NCF's Department of Science and Stewardship is working with the Massachusetts Division of Ecological Restoration's Cranberry Bog Program to develop a wetland restoration plan for NCF's Windswept Bog property, a formerly cultivated cranberry farm that was retired in 2017. The project is in the final stages of planning and will likely proceed to the permitting phase sometime in 2023.
