Woodcock Nature Center announced the recent addition of two new board members as well as a new environmental educator.
Newest board member, Lindsay Sheehy, is a Wilton resident and partner at Holland & Knight in Stamford. She has previously served on the Board of Directors for the Domestic Violence Crisis Center in CT and was honored with a 2017 BRAVA Award from the Greenwich YWCA, which recognizes accomplished female professionals who are leaders in their fields, serve as mentors and have a recognized commitment to philanthropy and community involvement.
James Osborn is a director and founding member of a clean energy focused private equity fund. Osborn has also worked as an investment banker focused on the energy and clean energy sector and began his career as an environmental engineering consultant. He is a resident of Ridgefield and is also a board member and secretary of the Ridgefield Education Foundation.
Educator Sam Nunes holds a B.A. in Biology from Roger Williams and recently worked as a seasonal resource assistant at the CT Department of Environmental Protection monitoring fish migration along Connecticut’s rivers. His teaching experience includes programs for elementary through high school students, as well as lifeguard classes and swim lessons as an instructor through the Red Cross. Sam is developing programs for upper elementary, middle and high school students and will be taking over coordination of Woodcock’s scout programs, among other things.
“I could not be more excited by the skills and talents that Lindsay, James and Sam bring to the Woodcock family. Sam’s appointment in particular is a signal of growth for the organization as his role is focused on an area of our programming that we have targeted to expand. In fact, we’re jumping right in and Sam will be running a new after-school program for upper elementary and middle-school students this spring,” notes executive director Lenore Eggleston Herbst.
These appointments follow Eggleston-Herbst’s own recent appointment as Executive Director in February.
