The NBNC Team
Kerry’s love of nature was founded in her family’s yearly tradition of visiting a special spot in the woods of Pennsylvania. She and her dog would search for water skimmers and fish in a nearby stream and she would later join her sister, mom, and dad in the search for salamanders and crayfish. They would end the day looking for red efts, calling out to groups of deer, and breathing in the refreshing, earthy air. When this special place became threatened by land use change, Kerry decided to study Natural Resources at the University of Vermont. Since moving to Vermont, Kerry has been involved in studying food systems and has worked at various farms and community agriculture programs in the Burlington area. Kerry loves birding, biking, swimming, singing, and dancing and is passionate about the intersection of agriculture and wildlife habitat. She is delighted to be serving at North Branch Nature Center with AmeriCorps and is excited to contribute to the restoration process and creation of a food forest at NBNC.
