Volunteer Spotlight: Louise Pitkin
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.
Louise has also been a generous donor to the Nature Center throughout the years, and when our new exhibit was built in 2012, she generously sponsored the installation of the 3D topographic map that is currently on display in our exhibit room. Louise was the 4th recipient of the coveted Campbell Norsgaard Award, which is the highest award that Flat Rock Brook can bestow which she accepted at our 40th Anniversary Recognition Dinner at the Englewood Field Club in May 2013. Louise has recently decided to relinquish her oversight of the newsletter and involvement in our website, but we wanted to express our gratitude for her service to the Nature Center through the years, and are pleased to offer her this small token of thanks in our Volunteer Spotlight from the entire Flat Rock Brook community.
