A Message from Elachee’s President/CEO

Spring and summer are a fast-paced seasons of energy and changes, both at Elachee Nature Science Center and in our surrounding beautiful, natural world. It certainly ‘takes the village’ for Elachee to function: there are many moving parts and so many people who work together to keep us functioning. 

Elachee gets children outside to experience the natural world.“I often liken Elachee to a giant puzzle with many pieces,” comments Andrea Timpone, Elachee President/CEO. “Each piece contributes work, expertise, financial support and/or wisdom for the shared passion and vision of providing excellent educational experiences and conservation practices in Chicopee Woods Nature Preserve.” 

Although Elachee is busy every season here’s a snapshot of the spring and summer happenings.

“Although this snapshot doesn’t do justice to or recognize the tremendous energy, dedication and passion of the volunteers and team members who are part of the puzzle, thank you everyone for this important work which makes Elachee be the best we can be,” adds Andrea.
