Carol Jarvis


Growing up on the Mississippi River in a small bluff town in Wisconsin, Carol has fond memories of boating and fishing with her family. Initially drawn to the Beacon Institute three years ago for its reminders of her hometown river, she continues to be dedicated to the Institute's mission, and enjoys greeting visitors several Saturdays a month.

A nature lover, Carol is a member of the Sierra Club and especially enjoys hiking and gardening.  Along with pursuing her creative interests (she graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Superior with a BFA degree in Art), she enjoys working in the Music Department at Vassar College and also is an antique dealer at HiHo Home Market and Antique Center in Gardiner, NY.
