Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you are having a great day!
The sun even shines in the forest. There are dark places along the trails of life, but if you keep walking, you will find a spot where the light of the sun just bursts through.
I have a B.S. in Child and Family Studies from Syracuse University. I love learning new things, and believe that the best way to learn them is “hands on.” So, you may see me doing a variety of tasks around the Center because as an Administrative Assistant and Volunteer Coordinator, I need to be able to convey to others what needs to be done or how to do it. I like to work efficiently, and sometimes that means taking time to learn the process of how things work before I can act prudently.
I started at Silver Lake Nature Center as a volunteer in April of 2014 and became a member of the staff in 2015. Come out and join us for Volunteer Work Days. It usually consists of meeting new people, cleaning up the Nature Center grounds, Len’s hot soup and sandwiches, and good old fashion fun. Don’t hesitate to contact me for more information about how you can get involved.
We welcome Kassandra Archer as of June 6, 2017!
Greetings my name is Kassandra Archer and I am excited to join the Silver Lake Nature Center team! I grew up in south Jersey in a town located between the Pinelands and the Barnegat Bay, which allowed me to develop a love and respect for the outdoors. I attended Montclair State University and received a Bachelors Degree in Geography with a concentration in Environmental Studies. After college I went on to serve our country through AmeriCorps where I had my first experiences with environmental education. During my two years of service I realized that I would be able to make the greatest impact by educating others about our planet and helping them to understand the impacts our species has on natural ecosystems. I decided to go back to Montclair State University to pursue a Masters in Environmental Education. During my time at MSU, I ran a STEM Summer Program for urban youth. I have a diverse background ranging from animal husbandry to trail building and I look forward to continuing to learn and grow at the Silver Lake Nature Center.
