  • Winter is Coming: Studying Winter Phenology in Jackson Hole

    For many people, the transition from fall to winter is characterized by gift-giving, decorations, warm jackets and cozy sweaters, not to mention cookies, pies, and other sweets. However, from a naturalist’s perspective, winter is perhaps best characterized by change: change in weather, foliage, animal behavior, and more.

  • The Yellowstone Wolves: Reflections on Objectivity in Science Education

    A particularly memorable teaching moment for me came during a camping trip to Yellowstone National Park in late June 2015 with a group of St. Louis middle school students. We hiked up to Trout Lake in Lamar Valley during our second day in the field, and I took the opportunity to teach about trophic cascades. I wanted to help the students build a deeper appreciation of the place they were visiting, the same place where wolves were re-introduced in 1995.
