Flat Rock Brook is pleased to honor a long-time Nature Center volunteer, Louise Pitkin. Louise has been active with the Nature Center for over two decades. Ms. Pitkin currently serves as an honorary member of our Board of Trustees, serving 7 years in that capacity. She also served on our Board of Trustees from 1996-2000, serving as President in 1998-99, and 2nd Vice President from 1996-1998. Louise has been an active member of the Nature Center’s Communications, Development and Land Stewardship Committees for many years, with Flat Rock tapping her unique expertise in graphic design to assist on many projects. In fact, Louise has managed our website for over a decade, provided graphic design support for our Nature Center for years, and has been the layout designer for our newsletter for nearly 20 years.
I’m happy to join the team at Flat Rock Brook Nature Center as an Environmental Educator. My background is in Environmental Studies, and I spent the last year completing a term of service with AmeriCorps as a Watershed Ambassador. Flat Rock Brook will allow me to combine my experiences with my passion for the environment.
We had another exciting summer here at Flat Rock Brook, and our camp was again a success. Thank you to all who made that possible, especially our staff, apprentices and volunteers. Our camp teachers, Brian Dedeian and Alissa Ambacher, did a fantastic job leading programs packed with games, activities, crafts, and hikes that kept the campers happily engaged!
