Would you recommend Sweetbriar Nature Center?

by Liz D. from Nesconset, NY (March 24, 2013)
Your organization seems like an oasis in the middle of the fast pace hectic life surrounding it. I am from NYC and recently moved to Nesconset. I have on my list of 'to do!s " is to come visit. I have prior work exper as a graphic artist (before computers and at United Airlines, and volunteering at Stray Hearts Animal Shelter in Taos, New Mexico. I thought working at your ctr would let me meet other like minded people, and contribute to a wonderful organization. Due to working 2nd and 3rd shift my only prob is I cannot do early mornings. I will stop by this coming week to see your center and introduce myself. Thks, Liz Dreams 917 455 6717 If calling pls don't call very early. Thks again.
