Alan Bellows

Director
Boothbay, ME
A lifelong hiker and backpacker, Alan began his trail work experience in college with week-long AT work trips with the Bates Outing Club (BOC), and two summers as a YCC crew leader at Mt Blue and Baxter state parks.  After retiring from a career in applications development and IT management,  he resumed helping the BOC with their AT section on Bemis Mountain.  That quickly snowballed into becoming a maintainer (Wyman to Hall Mountain), sawyer, corridor monitor (Moxie Bald Mountain,) helping with privy builds and lean-to sill replacements, and most recently he was appointed assistant manager in the Bigelow district.  He’s lived for over 35 years in Boothbay with wife Wendy on their hobby farm (horses and chickens) where he’s been chair of the town planning and appeals boards, board member and president of the Boothbay Harbor Opera House, and is a volunteer and stewardship committee member for the local land trust.
