Have fun and get involved!

Dear Friends,

The Finger Lakes Museum & Aquarium (FLM&A) is excitedly preparing for another fun-filled calendar of programs for summer 2017. In order to help these programs be a splashing success, we are recruiting dedicated volunteers to help out. It is a thrilling time to become involved with FLM&A, and there is certainly something for everyone!

This year’s programs have been organized by our new Program/Outfitting Director, Deb Lyon. Deb has been an environmental educator for the past 10 years after a career as Captain with the United States Air Force and then as a Civil Engineer. Deb’s diverse background as an environmental educator has taken her to Belize, Guatemala, and to various institutions here in the United States. Her passion for learning and educating enables her to be an ideal educator with the FLM&A and to lead excellent research programs with all age groups.

Also joining the museum as Assistant Director is Kelley Jo Elliott. One of Kelley’s main tasks will be coordinating the activities of and communication with, all museum volunteers. Kelley is excited to be able to combine her passion for the outdoors with her 10+ years of experience working at museums in Montana, Washington DC, and most recently in Corning, NY.
