nonprofits,local leaders & Grt.New Haven business sharing information
In our sixth episode of the Voices of Local Leaders series, we interview Nikki Saccoccia, an environmental educator working as the Schooner Camp Director and Preserves Coordinator for Gather New Haven. Nikki grew up in Connecticut and has always been fascinated by natural sciences and education. Through middle-school and high-school, she got involved in several initiatives to learn more about field research and help researchers in their work, including volunteer opportunities and internship across the state like mapping invasive species, tagging geese and butterflies, and catching dragonflies and damselflies. Using hands-on, outdoor experiences that combine arts and natural sciences, Nikki creates learning opportunities that foster a deep relationship between kids and adults with the environment.
