Areas of Interest

I teach interpretation, environmental education, and ethics courses in natural resources and education. I do research with nonformation educational settings, such as nature centers, zoos, aquariums, and visitor centers, to measure impacts of visitors' learning. I work with the state 4-H program as a specialist in natural resources/environmental education and develop outreach programs for youth.
