I was the child who couldn't sit still in a classroom, who longed to be outside and experiencing nature, who excelled in hands-on lab and field work. I see what the impact that environmental education can have on a child first-hand. It is an honor to be able to impact people's relationship to the natural world and nurture a deep respect for our environment. Plus my office is better than pretty much anything else you could choose.Favorite Joke:
