The Wellesley Natural Resources Commission (NRC) has hired Wellesley resident and naturalist Lisa Moore as the new Environmental Education and Outreach Coordinator. Moore is a skilled science educator and her experience both in the classroom and in nature will help further the NRC’s role as an environmental leader in Wellesley.
During the past seven years, Moore has worked as a naturalist at Mass Audubon’s Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary and a naturalist-in-residence at Pine Hill Elementary in Sherborn, leading programs about environmental education to support state standards. She is also a freelance writer and photographer with a recurring nature series published in The Hometown Weekly community newspaper.
In her new role with the NRC, Moore will develop earth-friendly-focused projects and communication materials to promote NRC events and activities and educate the community about the importance of protecting our environment. She will also collaborate with other town departments and Wellesley schools to support environmental education programs about erosion, food rescue, threats to open space and other issues.
Moore will be in the NRC office on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Contact her by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the NRC at (781-431-1019, x2290).
