The LIMG February 19, 2020, meeting, as usual, will be at the Brookhaven Ecology Site. The guest speaker will be Taralynn Reynolds. Her presentation will be spell bounding as promised by the short statement below on her travels, education, and worldwide programs she has been involved with.
Outreach and Education Manager
Taralynn has been a lifelong advocate of animals and the natural world and was inspired to pursue a career in conservation and education. After stints in the field, she began teaching as an environmental educator at the Wildlife Conservation Society in New York after completing a master's degree in Conservation Biology from Columbia University. She has also helped develop a schoolyard habitat program with the National Audubon Society where she worked with K-12 students to plan and build "living laboratories," or outdoor classrooms. An avid traveler, Taralynn has combined her passion for protecting the planet and seeing new places. She spent three months living in the rainforests of Madagascar, studying endangered primates and two months in Ecuador where she led groups of high school students through the amazing experience of creating wildlife habitat and monitoring plant growth in the famous Galapagos Islands. She also held a position as a biology and environmental science teacher at BASIS International School Shenzhen, China. For two years she taught and traveled throughout Southeast Asia, encouraging her students to become stewards of the world around them. Taralynn joined the Group in 2019.
