April Volunteer Highlight: Sharon Siter

How long have you been volunteering with BNRC?

About 3 years.

What is your favorite BNRC property?

BNRC has so many great properties. A favorite of mine is Housatonic Flats.  I walk the Housatonic Flats trail frequently and snowshoe there in the winter. I also enjoy photographing and birdwatching on the property.

As a photographer I always have a camera with me on the trails and share many of my photographs with BNRC.

What is your motivation for volunteering?

I enjoy volunteering.  It is fun and rewarding.  I can use my skills to help others as well as to learn new skills.

I also volunteer with other local organizations: Great Barrington Land Conservancy, Housatonic Valley Association, Sheffield Land Trust and DCR.
