Whether you know him as Pat, Mr. B, Mr. Burke or simply as the guy who brings you Pat’s Place every Wednesday, we know you’ll join us in wishing Environmental Educator Patrick Burke the best of luck as he returns to teaching full time in 2019. Pat started as a camp counselor at The Woods and grew into a full-time educator with an incredible passion and skill for meeting children of all ages and backgrounds right where they are and connecting them to nature. We know his ability to combine humor and education into impactful teachable moments will continue to serve him well in his very own classroom. We hope to see him back as a beloved camp counselor this summer!
Rebecca Cosgrove joined our Woods team, first as a Nature in the City intern, then as a summer intern through a SUNY ESF Fink Career Fellowship, and we are pleased to welcome her as our new Program Assistant! With a passion for stewardship and youth development, Rebecca has been involved with marketing, program development, summer camp, our 5K race, and Nature in the City lessons. A senior at SUNY-ESF, she will graduate in the spring of 2019 with a B.S. in Environmental Studies.
