CURB Welcomes Katie Lamboy to the Team

CURB is excited to announce the recent hiring of Katie Lamboy as our new Environmental Educator & Science Director. Katie will be an integral part of the CURB team helping to facilitate our Hudson River education programs, developing and leading our Saturday River Explorers lessons, and managing the water quality monitoring program. 

Katie Lamboy is a Bronx native with a passion for her local environment and community. As a youth living within an incredibly urban neighborhood, it seemed impossible to be able to follow her dreams of becoming a scientist and conducting meaningful research. This long imagined dream became reality when she enrolled in the Marine Environmental Science degree program and graduated with high honors from a little college present within her home borough of the Bronx, SUNY Maritime. Obtaining a degree with a minor in Marine Biology, Katie sought out to learn and was accepted as Education Intern for the Bronx River Alliance in 2011. After a 3 year position as exhibit guide for the Bronx Children's Museum, Katie has returned to the Bronx River Alliance as head of the education and on-water recreation program from 2014-2019. Her efforts in making urban river learning fun and engaging have been recognized and she has been awarded as an Everyday Hero by Urban Health Plan in 2016 as well as the Keeping It "Reel" environmental education award by Bronx Council on Environmental Quality (BCEQ) in 2018.

We're happy to have Katie on the team as we head into our busy spring and summer seasons. Feel free to stop by and say hello!
