Roger was one of the founding members of the High Peaks Alliance and served on its first board of directors. His family has inhabited Strong, Maine for six generations. He is an avid outdoorsman and sportsman and the owner of a local window and glass business. He became a Registered Maine Guide in 1997 and a Master Maine Guide in 2006. In addition to his time with the High Peaks Alliance’s Board of Directors, he served many years as a Board Member of the Maine Professional Guides Association (MPGA).
State Senator Tom Saviello has been a close friend of Roger for many years. The two of them were concerned with the subdividing and closing off of once publicly accessible land. They began discussing the possibility of starting a nonprofit to protect public access to outdoor sporting and recreation opportunities in the High Peaks Region. This brought him into contact with Lloyd Griscom, a current board member who shares Roger’s concerns and values. Their discussions ultimately resulted in the creation of the High Peaks Alliance in 2007. His involvement did much to nail down the fundamental objectives and structure of the alliance. Many of the current board members are friends or associates of Roger Lambert who were recruited into the organizationby himself and Lloyd.
