What I want to do

I am doing what I want to do! I am a co-founder and co-director of Ecology in Classrooms & Outdoors (ECO), a Portland-based nonprofit. ECO aims to "connect students to nature through exploration of local ecology." We bring a series of hands-on ecology activities to elementary school students in the Portland area. Our programs are during school hours, occur inside and outdoors, and are aligned with educational standards.

What matters to me

Connecting kids to nature, and helping them to recognize the value of their environment.

What inspires me

Being a part of students' positive experiences in the outdoors.

Oregon Environmental Council, Inc.
August 6, 2013

I'm a volunteer member of the Oregon Environmental Council's Emerging Leader Board (ELB), and am so impressed with OEC. The organization consistently works to improve life for all Oregonians through legislative action. OEC bring together people from all different walks of life to accomplish positive change for our state. OEC is a forward-thinking organization that is genuinely concerned about the environmental future of Oregon, as evidenced through the many efforts made to make Oregon better, as well as the existence of the Emerging Leaders Board!

Ecology in Classrooms and Outdoors (ECO)
November 6, 2009

Ecology in Classrooms & Outdoors has a dedicated bunch of Scientists in Residence & Board Members. These people work hard to uphold the organization's mission to bring science enrichment programming to elementary schools. ECO programs are fun and hands-on. Lessons are 30-45 minutes long, and occur in one classroom at a time during the school day. Kids love ECO. Teachers love ECO. Principals love ECO.
