About your Instructor
Hi, I’m Rebecca!
I'm a naturalist, writer, and environmental educator. My mission is to conserve biodiversity and connect people to nature. I live in upstate New York and hold a B.S. in Conservation Biology with a minor in Environmental Writing and Rhetoric from the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. As a National Geographic Certified Educator, I am passionate about helping students develop a sense of curiosity and wonder, critical thinking skills, and environmental literacy through place-based learning. I'm also a mentor for the Field Notebook module in the American Birding Association's "Young Birder of the Year" program and a coauthor of the STEM Teaching Tool for Nature Journaling.

Each day you’ll learn about a different topic, and you’ll get a nature journal prompt you can do outside at home. Did you know you are the world expert on your own backyard?
On the next day, you’ll have the chance to share your nature journal discoveries.
We’ll also have some camp-style songs, movement and games to keep you energized.
These lessons were originally created for the Izaak Walton League of America “Young Naturalists” program in Spring 2020 when we had to go online because of Covid. For this, I received a national-level award from the IWLA “In recognition of outstanding work performed in the fields of conservation, public information and publicity.”
