Alum Maggie Anderson Reflects on Her Career in the Wild
Looking back on a career that spans 38 years, MCCC alumna and wildlife manager Maggie Anderson '70 (A.A.S., Science) remembers a time when women were the minority in her field. She recently retired after having spent many years as a wildlife refuge manager in several states -- first at Lee Metcalf National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) in Montana, then at Petit Manan NWR in Maine, and most recently, at the Agassiz NWR in Minnesota. Prior to these posts, she served in various other wildlife positions in Maine, Iowa, Michigan and Wisconsin, including working as a fish biologist. "My career has been a lifestyle, a connection to the land and the creatures that live there," Anderson says. Read more and see photo of Maggie with a bear here.
