Hello: I've been here as a Ranger with OSMP for 17 years. I also worked for 6 years for the National Park Service. I have taught for environmental centers at the University of Georgia and the University of Wisconsin. My Bachelor's degree includes a Major in Biology and Minor in Secondary Education. I've given over 1000 programs in my career! Even with extensive experience in Law Enforcement, Fire and Search/Rescue I love teaching the most! Wow! Is that a real ground hog in that picture?
