Susie Spikol is a naturalist at the Harris Center for Conservation Education in Hancock, NH. For more than 30 years she has been helping people of all ages make positive and sustainable connections to the environment.
Whether it’s bringing children out on ponding field trips, or sharing her tracking expertise with adult learners, Susie’s style of teaching is hands-on with all senses open. She has been recognized as a leader in her field in the region and is a recipient of the NH’s Environmental Educator’s award. An occasional adjunct faculty for Antioch New England University, she has also played a role in teaching teachers and new naturalists the art and practice of teaching in the outdoors. When not leading a Babies in Backpacks, Toddlers in Tow hike, or out owling with a group of 2nd graders, Susie tucks away to time to write. Her writing has appeared consistently in Northern Woodlands magazine and several of her essays have been featured in environmental educator and author David Sobel’s books.
