“When I took my first nature center director position I was pretty green, so to speak, to the challenges and opportunities of being a nature center director. Luckily I found ANCA and in 1995 attended the first ANCA Summit at Treehaven in northern Wisconsin and it was truly an invaluable and life changing experience. I really did feel like I had found my people and life long friendships have resulted. ANCA is a wonderful organization and I am very grateful for all that is has done for me and so many of my colleagues and kindred spirits.” - Tim Sandsmark, Education Supervisor, Lookout Mountain Nature Center
