Last week, we bid farewell to SITES project director Jennifer Bine who has accepted a position at the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, New York. We’ll surely miss her dedication, good humor, and super-easy- going management style, but once we heard the news, we all realized that the new job appears to be tailor-made for our outdoorsy colleague (whose Facebook posts regularly include images of enviable ski trips and kayaking adventures).
Jennifer has been a part of the SITES family for 20 years, working on popular natural history and science shows such as In Search of Giant Squid, Titanoboa: Monster Snake, Wondrous Cold: An Antarctic Journey and Caves: A Fragile Wilderness. She most recently launched Animal Connections: Our Journey Together, a traveling truck exhibition that opened in Chicago over summer 2013.
Jennifer's Smithsonian pals wish her well as she embarks on new professional and personal journeys.
