Naturalist Educator & Wilderness Skills Instructor
As a child Porcupine spent countless hours exploring, observing, swimming, and fishing on the lands and waters of Lake Erie. Curious and thankful for the generations that came before us Porcupine received a degree in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Toledo. Noticing a connection with his childhood and the next generation of kids, Porcupine became a Resident Naturalist teaching hands-on inquiry-based science for the Juneau School District. Wanting to deepen his naturalist training he completed the rigorous, nine-month residential Anake Naturalist Training Program at the Wilderness Awareness School in Duvall, WA. During that time he also completed the certification through Kamana Four, a self directed three-year nature study program. From there he has served as a freelance naturalist in various settings on the West coast ultimately becoming the In-School Programs Specialist at Seward Park Audubon. Porcupine throughly enjoys free imaginative play and you might find him at a local park building fairy houses.
