Jennifer Sloan, Director of Education
Jennifer has worked in the environmental field since her AmeriCorps experience in 2004 as a member of the Catskill Outdoor Education Corps. After completing her degree, she went to work, first as a naturalist intern, and then as the Intern Coordinator/Environmental Educator at the Greenburgh Nature Center in Scarsdale, NY until 2010. She has also worked for Sheldrake Environmental Center as an educator and the White Plains Youth Bureau as their summer Greening Project supervisor and after-school programmer. Her passion for farming began in 2009 while she interned at an organic CSA style farm on Long Island, known as Restoration Farm. In 2011, she was a full-time apprentice at Keith’s Farm in Port Jervis, NY and sold produce at the Union Square Farmer’s Market. She has also attended the American Horticultural Society’s 2009 Youth Gardening Symposium as well as the Northeast Organic Farm Association’s 2010 Winter Conference. The Science Barge became her new, happy home in March 2012 and it allows her to combine her passions for science education, sustainable agriculture, and environmentalism.
Jennifer holds a B.A in Animal Behavior from Bucknell University.
