Teaching and Researching Locally

Topics: teaching education

Elliott’s local research involves the threat posed to area forests by the Emerald Ash Bore, a predatory insect. Ash trees infected by these insects have a 100% mortality rate. In addition to this work, Elliott is collaborating on a science school at Rock Bridge State Park that will show students how forests change over time.
