Through experiential field trips, workshops and research, I attempt to bridge communities to particular ecosystems. These activities are designed to increase understanding and appreciation of nature and are open to the public or groups of students. Likewise, participants collect important ecological data making them “citizen scientists”. I believe that through hand on research and getting our feet wet we can learn a lot about our backyard and the life-forms we share this planet with.
