Nancy Shackelford, Academic Director (firstname.lastname@example.org)
"Mostly, I'm a restoration researcher, but I love boots-on-the-ground science, and I feel so privileged to be working with the RNS Program and its amazing array of students. Come to my office any time to talk science, restoration, community-engaged learning, and / or pop culture, football, food, really anything.....I always have a cup of tea or coffee at the ready, and comfy chairs for thinking about life in."
Ryan Hilperts, Student Liaison (email@example.com)
"I am an educator with a serious passion for community engaged learning. I teach in the School of Environmental Studies and also direct the Redfish School of Change, which is focused on building resilient communities of leaders on both sides of the border in the Salish Sea. I’m so pleased to help support the RNS student community in the inspiring, useful, and ultimately hope-filled work that they do in ecosystem restoration!"
