Karie Charlton (EVS/Biology '11) recently began working as an environmental educator with the Conservancy for the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. You can now follow her adventures on Karie's new blog, Tales from the Trails, where she is posting beautiful photos and descriptions of the life she finds in our National Park just south of Cleveland, Ohio.
While at Ashland University Karie took her first blogging steps in our senior capstone course, where students practice their skills communicating science to the public. This past year one of our environmental science courses used a new blog to share current news and research. Blogging has become a valuable way to engage the public with science, and it is exciting to see some of our alumni taking part.
