Program Assistant

I help develop curricula for grades K-12 and professional development initiatives for teachers. Our goal is to support teachers in engaging students in inquiry-based science and outdoor experiences

I worked for several years protecting water resources through regulations. During that time, I realized that many people did not understand either the intrinsic value or true utilitarian value of our natural resources. Therefore, I decided that I would rather help educate people about the natural world so that I could be part of the change in how we know and understand our natural resources.

Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life. Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe, the less taste we shall have for destruction.
