The NBNC Team
Growing up in the Ohio River Valley, Ken spent nearly every waking hour outside. Whether it was trailing whitetails through the oak-hickory forests, catching panfish in farm ponds, or getting lost while searching for trilobite fossils in the creek, all of his formative memories have come outdoors. After receiving a B.A. in Creative Writing from Miami University, he spent several years traveling the country, teaching environmental education through the Student Conservation Association and the Audubon Society. Ken joined the team in 2012 and after a decade of helping children form their own outdoor memories through NBNC's programming, he stepped into the role of Director of Education in 2022. He is honored to be able to put his experience to work leading and supporting North Branch's amazing team of educators. While Ken is not birding, hunting, fishing with his son, or partaking in any of his other vast array of hobbies, he can be found foraging and creating delicious meals harvested from the wild.
