Speaker: Heather Hulton VanTassel
Carnegie Museum of Natural History
Come meet Dr. Hulton VanTassel, our new Assistant Director of Science and Research. Heather will tell her story of her professional journey to the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in the context of how she has been striving to move conservation forward and how her career path relates to the museum’s newest initiative, the Anthropocene. There are many avenues to move conservation forward from applied conservation research, land management, community outreach, and educational programs. Heather will touch upon her experience in each of those areas highlighting some of her favorite projects that aim to understand and mitigate community level responses to anthropogenic change across multiple habitats and species.
