Meet the Education Staff

The AF Education staff is comprised of some of the most talented and passionate educators there is on topics like amphibians + reptiles and biology, conservation + stewardship. Our pilot and possibly most beloved program — Critter Camp, has been growing since it started 10 years ago, and we have engaged with thousands of campers, students, and learners of all ages since then. At our founding, we identified how essential compelling and engaging educational programs would be to successfully achieving our mission of 'creating and implementing lasting solutions to the amphibian extinction crisis'.
