Sally Kellogg left her NYSDEC Urban Forestry Partnerships Coordinator position at the end of December. “I’m sad to be leaving my urban forestry family but excited for the next chapter in my life,” she says. Sally had worked in the department since July, 2012.
Sally and her boyfriend Jon purchased a home on Long Island in September, 2018. Last week, Sally started working for the Long Island South Shore Estuary program, which is administered by the Department of State. The program oversees the health of 75 miles of estuary coast, known as the South Shore Estuary Reserve, from the Queens/Nassau County line eastward about 75 miles to the Village of Southampton in Suffolk County.
Sally’s education at SUNY Stony Brook (class of 2012) prepared Sally well for this position: she majored in Environmental Science with concentrations in Marine Environment and Environmental Law. And of course, her years of experience in the DEC urban forestry program will also serve her well. “I know the skills I developed and partners I met while in the urban forestry program will translate to the new position,” Sally says. “I look forward to the new challenges and experiences.”
The Council is going to miss you dearly, Sally. You are very highly esteemed in this organization, and we wish you nothing but the best!
