On Saturday, November 9, at a joint meeting of the Massachusetts Forest & Park Friends Network and the DCR Stewardship Council in West Boylston, Massachusetts, Stacy Atchison Kilb, Seasonal Visitor Services Supervisor for the DCR Middlesex Fells and Breakheart Reservations, was honored as 2019 DCR Friend of the Year.
The Friends of the Middlesex Fells Reservation proudly nominated Stacy Atchison Kilb, Seasonal Visitor Services Supervisor for the DCR Middlesex Fells and Breakheart Reservations.
Stacy’s longstanding vision is to “inspire conservation though engaging education.” At Friends of the Fells, we run a summer Fells Forest Camp, and in that capacity we partner with Stacy to engage with our young campers. For example, Stacy maintains a special vermiculture set-up to demonstrate using worms to decompose organic food waste. Stacy gets the children excited about the vermiculture process, as it turns food waste into a nutrient-rich material capable of supplying necessary nutrients to help sustain plant growth.
Stacy is an experienced Outreach Coordinator and Park Interpreter accomplished in developing environmental and agricultural programs for a wide variety of audiences. With excellent presentation skills and proficiency in the development of program publicity, she can adeptly reach any audience in any age bracket. More important, she understands the importance of accurate data collection and reporting to determine the efficacy of outreach/programs, a skill which she also shares with us. The Friends of the Fells is deeply grateful to Stacy for her programming ideas, and we collaborate on program promotion for both our audiences.
We appreciate all that Stacy brings to our programming and we look forward to working with her in the months and years ahead.
