Uses science, art, and writing to help people of all ages connect with nature.
"The whole idea I try to get across is that everybody can be a scientist. I think it's important to be giving students access and showing them that science is more than just reading a book. You’re getting outside and you're digging things and measuring things and getting involved physically. There are so many different ways to be a scientist."
