About

erikI’m an environmental educator.  I’ve led outdoor education trips in the United States and abroad, continuing my education by training with the Nova Scotia Sea School and the Wilderness Medicine Institute of the National Outdoor Leadership School.

My mission is to keep noticing things in the wild, be it a human-built city or a forest in Madagascar. Phenomena happen every day right over our heads and under our noses, whether we sense it or not. That’s why I write, that’s why I teach, and that’s why I explore the world and my backyard. If we notice what is happening around us every day, we may take care not to sacrifice the things that matter most for the things that matter least.
