Background
Scott's work at the Survey is quite varied but includes significant outreach, teaching and public service components. He is often the first point of contact for information about the Survey, helps coordinate fundraising and interacts regularly with stakeholders both inside and outside the University. He works closely with classes and other groups visiting the KU Field Station, and he provides technical support and field assistance for many types of aquatic and terrestrial studies. He is a former high school teacher, and for 12 years prior to joining the Survey in 1998, he was self-employed as a freelance naturalist and environmental educator.


Areas of specialization
