Weir Farm National Historic Site
Carly grew up in northwestern New Jersey near the Delaware Water Gap and has always loved nature and the parks! She graduated from Boston University in 2017 and has a BA in Archaeology with a minor in Art History. Shortly after graduation she had the opportunity to travel to Alaska and spent her time there excavating a two-thousand-year-old site and teaching the local community about their history. This experience sparked her interest in getting people more involved with the preservation of their past, which led her to the National Park Service. In 2018, Carly started at Weir Farm National Historic Site as a curatorial intern and she loved the site and it's story so much that she applied to be their Community Volunteer Ambassador for 2019. In her second term, she hopes to create new volunteer positions for the park, develop a BARK Ranger program, and spread her enthusiasm for Weir Farm to the surrounding communities. Carly is passionate about the National Park Service, preserving history and protecting our resources and she looks forward to continuing to share these passions with the volunteers and visitors of Weir Farm NHS this season!
