Sarah Hooghuis

Environmental Education and Outreach AmeriCorps Member

Sarah hails from Connecticut where she spent most of her childhood exploring the wetland and hardwood forest in the park just across the street, which cultivated a deep respect and interest in the natural world. She recently graduated from Skidmore College with a degree in Environmental Studies and a focus on environmental education and food systems. In between semesters Sarah taught at environmental education organizations from New Mexico to Martha’s Vineyard where she enjoyed sharing the natural and cultural history of the land with campers. Most of all, Sarah loves teaching how natural and cultivated landscapes interact with one another and where their relationship can be more sustainable. Sarah is excited to be the Americorps Member at Audubon Vermont because it is an opportunity to give back to both the greater community and an organization she loves, while also building her skills as a naturalist. In her free time Sarah writes poetry, tends to her many plants, and cooks yummy vegetarian meals.
