Luke 2

Luke Cadrin

Field Operations Manager

Luke is a native Cape Codder who grew up appreciating the Cape’s ponds, marshes, and woods. This led him to pursue a BS in Biology at Saint Michael’s College in Vermont. However, the ocean called Luke back to the Cape where he has worked as a park interpreter, a fisheries observer, and most recently as an oyster farmer. He joined BCWC in spring 2022 with the goal of helping to protect the local waters and habitats he enjoyed as a youth. Luke currently lives in Mashpee with his wife Kacey and their many pets, where you can also still find him out exploring the Cape’s ponds, marshes, and woods.

Christy Laidlaw

Development Consultant

Raised in Montclair, NJ, Christy spent every summer at her family's house in Harwich (yet another dreaded summer kid!). She developed her love of water from those Cape Cod summers, particularly swimming and hopping the waves.

Christy graduated from Skidmore College with a BS in Fine Art and after graduation moved down to NYC to work in the arts. She worked in art galleries and at an art school, and then in an unusual career twist, worked ten years as a Newsdesk Editor at Time Magazine. After relocating full time to the Cape with her husband and young daughter Claire in 2009, Christy worked for nearly 10 years at the Cahoon Museum of American Art in membership, public relations and development.

After watching the water quality decline on the Cape, she doesn't swim as much anymore and has become passionate about helping find a way to fix it.

In her free time Christy helps restore their historic home and enjoys walks on the beach with her family and their dog, Hoppy.
