We are excited to have a dedicated and enthusiastic AmeriCorps Vista Volunteer for the academic year! Crystal Routhe will be helping to gather information, resources, supplies and opportunities related to STEAM and to help us build our own capacity in this area. She comes to us with a background in natural resource ecology and management. She graduated in May of 2017 with a degree in forestry, with an emphasis in wildlife ecology and management. After finishing school she worked as a wildlife technician for the US Forest Service for three seasons, where she helped conduct wildlife surveys and answer public questions about management practices on the forest. In her off seasons she was a math tutor for grades K-12 where she grew a passion for STEAM education.
