The beginning of 2016 brought another new AmeriCorps VISTA member to Camp Fletcher. Marion Brown will be serving as the Education Coordinator VISTA at camp, overseeing the development of garden lesson plans and field trip curriculum. We are hoping to have garden field trips available to schools in 2016, and Marion will play a key part of insuring that our programs are relevant, engaging and educational for all students. We know she’s going to do a great job, and we can’t wait for you to learn more about her!
Marion is from Mobile, but has lived in the Birmingham area for many years. She holds an AA Degree in Criminal Justice. This is her 5th year serving with an AmeriCorps project. Her past projects include two years with the UAB Civitan AmeriCorps State and National program. She has also worked with many area agencies including the American Red Cross, Lakeshore Foundation, Exceptional Foundation, Head Injury Foundation, Birmingham Aids Outreach, AIDS Alabama, FocusFirst Impact Alabama and Samford University.
Marion says she’s excited to help Camp Fletcher reach area communities, schools and organizations with knowledge of important natural resources.
We know 2016 is going to be a great year for the Education Garden & Camp Fletcher! If you’d like more information about the garden, field trip opportunities, or ways to get involved, click here.
