Susie Spikol Faber

Community Programs Coordinator & Teacher-Naturalist

Susie and some young friends learn about worms.Susie spent her youth exploring the wild edges of Brooklyn, NY and roving the rolling green hills of southern Vermont. After one statistics class, she abandoned her childhood dream of becoming a wolf scientist and decided that teaching children in the outdoors was just as exciting as working with a pack of wild canines.

After interning as an environmental educator with the Central Park Conservancy and several summer stints with the Massachusetts Audubon Society, she wandered upon the Harris Center in 1991 and has never left.

When not romping around the Harris Center’s Big Woods in search of new additions to her scat and sign collection, Susie and her family spend many hours tending to their orchard, which is nestled on the edge of Skatutakee Mountain.
