Laurel Sullivan, the new education coordinator at Delaware Reserve.
Laurel Sullivan, a Delaware native, comes to the Delaware Reserve with a Bachelors of Science degree in Captive Wildlife Care and Education from Maine’s Unity College.
“I am excited to return to interpretation in the Delaware Bay and continue to foster love for Delaware’s estuaries—and its horseshoe crabs!—through programming for all ages,” says Laurel. “I look forward to working with my team here at DNERR and with the NERRs nationwide.”
As a student, Laurel interned with Boston’s New England Aquarium, where she worked on several whale watching vessels. After graduation, she returned to her home state to work for the Delaware Fish and Wildlife DuPont Nature Center as their Lead Educator, where she grew her appreciation for the Delaware Bay.
Before joining the Reserve, Laurel worked for Delaware State Parks as an Interpretive Specialist in the Central Office. There, she managed statewide programming, coordinated large events, and assisted with the management of the visitor experience strategy. She is excited to start her next big adventure at the Delaware Reserve and return to educating others on the importance of estuaries and the Delaware Bay.
