Jordan - Environmental Studies with minors in Geology and Sociology
I’m very excited to be working with a great team that will give opportunities for children to get outside and explore their surroundings. I hope I can help to cultivate a lifelong interest in nature and nature conservation for all the students that join us at HJ Andrews Experimental Forest.
Liz - General Sciences
Canopy Connections fell into my lap at a critical point when I was deciding how to shape my future teaching career. I am so excited to be a part of such a transformative experience that not only strengthens my teaching skills, but more importantly provides children the opportunity to explore nature at its finest.
Ashley - Environmental Studies Masters Student
After spending 7 years studying Andean ecosystems in Ecuador, I’ve returned to academia to further explore coupled human-environmental systems, what sustains them and how we can collectively create thriving equitable communities. Canopy connections has not only supported me in this endeavor, but also gets us (the UO team and the students we serve) outside enjoying our nearby old growth forest. Fresh air, towering Douglas-fir, Pacific Wren’s playlist, it’s good to be outside!
