When teaching courses such as conservation biology and freshwater ecology, I rely on community engagement to connect my students and the course content to local stakeholders who are working to address the environmental issues facing our local community and beyond. Previous projects have included participating in invasive species removal days at a local wetland, working with a community stakeholder to investigate water quality in a pond, and organizing and participating in a local park’s Bio Blitz.

Much of my community engagement is done through my teaching in which I integrate engagement between students and the broader community. This can be seen in my Inside-Out teaching where I take students to have class at a men’s prison and Clark County Juvenile Detention Center and in my Science and Social Context course during which we work with People for Safe Water. These courses serve as a means for all of us to be challenged to think critically, carefully and compassionately immersed within our local and global communities.
