In Georgia, I was heavily involved in outreach as the Wetlands Education Coordinator at the Center for Wildlife Education at Georgia Southern University. This position was part of the NSF-funded Georgia Partnership for Reform in Science and Mathematics (PRISM). Highlights of my tenure at the Wildlife Center included creating a lesson plan for elementary school students about the anatomical adaptations seen in the animal world called “Animal Adaptations” and leading field trips into nearby wetlands with teachers and students. Some photos of one adventure into an outdoor classroom in Brooklet, Georgia are below.
Here I am teaching the awesome children of Brooklet Elementary about all about wetlands!
We found a slimy salamander (Plethodon grobmani) right in their backyard!
