What is your role at TLC? As the Education and Outreach Manager, it is my job to develop and implement events and education programs to engage all members of our communities around TLC’s preserves, conservation, and stewardship efforts.
Favorite TLC Preserve? Johnston Mill is my favorite. I love hiking along the New Hope Creek while watching out for wildlife. Like many of TLC’s preserves, it’s amazing that we have such peaceful places to enjoy that are so close to urban centers.
