All About Tara

Nurturing with Nature in Mind

Trained as an aquatic scientist and environmental educator, my interests are in science communication and empowering the public to participate in scientific data collection for conservation management decisions. I lean towards connecting to and using the soul in all I do on the planet and enjoy teaching all ages about the earth and creating meaningful experiences that bring people closer in a reverent relationship with our planet.

I have assisted individuals, groups, other than humans (wildlife, pets), families, environmental educators and scientists, teachers, and non-profit environmental organizations in their interests to improve their existence (relieving stress and depression about what we see on the planet) and the existence of the earth. 

I have spent over 18 years in the research and environmental education fields, and have an M.S. in Conservation Ecology & Sustainable Development from the University of Georgia’s Odum School of Ecology. With a focus on freshwater stewardship and sustainability, I travel the world educating others how to connect with, sustain and understand the planet’s water resources on the physical and soul levels. My interests spread wide from amphibian and reptile conservation, landscape design of schoolyards for mental wellbeing and watershed health, streamside forest protection, community outreach, environmental literacy, nature therapy and nurturing, youth leadership and more.  I practice a ‘less is best’ way of life and love it!

I am deeply committed to uplifting the earth and all life here, so that we and the earth can continue to be ‘light and bright.’  We are all connected on this path, and I am so honored to be here with you. Please reach out to me if you would like to learn more or wish for assistance on your journey. The blog posts are full of inspiration from the earth to live great joy, care and kindness.
