Volunteer Recognition

Katharine Dodge

Kathy is one of the founding members of SEEDS, holding leadership positions from 2008 until the present. She thinks that SEEDS is one of the most inspiring groups she has ever worked with. She holds a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and a MA from Marywood University. She moved to Wayne County in 1972 to work as staff illustrator at Highlights for Children Magazine. She lives on an old farm in Lake Ariel with husband Pete Snyder where they raised two sons, and continue to raise most of their own food. They have solar power and a geothermal system. Kathy has been a board member of the Northeast PA Audubon Society since 1974. She is active in peace and justice issues, and environmental education (including spending 4 years creating a mural at Wayne Conservation District, to be used for environmental education). She now volunteers her art skills to help her favorite organizations raise money.
