Sara grew up exploring green spaces around Indian River County, as she was raised right here in Vero Beach. Sara’s relationship with the ELC goes back almost a decade. From 2006-2008 Sara helped teach our school programs as a part-time naturalist and returned as an educator in 2016. Let's hear more about her experience at ELC:
"It’s hard to pick out just a few reasons I love working at the ELC. My office is located outside most days, often wading waist-deep in the Indian River Lagoon. Of course working on this beautiful island, surrounded by nature is a real perk but, what I love most is that I get to help forge connections between people and nature. This summer I’ve been able to do so through guided pontoon trips to the Sebastian Inlet and Pelican Island, sharing my love and passion for our natural resources and the history of this area. I’ve also been busy leading our new Lagoon Island Family Adventure program. This program has been a hit and is personally very rewarding. I get to help families create memories and bonding time through fun, educational outdoor activities. What’s not to love?"
