Our Earth is beautiful - Learning about it should be too!

Welcome to Wild Earth Lab! My name is Valerie and I’m a scientist, artist, and avid outdoorswoman currently in Colorado, USA. My curiosity about the natural world started at a young age, exploring the prairies and woods of Wisconsin where I grew up. This curiosity blossomed into a love of backpacking and hiking as a teenager, which inspired me to embark on what I saw as the ultimate outdoor adventure – a thru-hike of the 2,180-mile Appalachian Trail – and to later pursue a degree in Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology.

In the past few years, I have worked as a scientist in both the field and in the laboratory. I’ve measured the flow of headwater streams, counted new seedlings in beetle-kill forests, evaluated the health of insect communities in a national park, and studied soils following forest fires and chemical spills. As a scientist, I’ve had the opportunity to intimately understand our relationship as humans with nature: what we are doing right, what we are doing wrong, and how we can do better.

My goal in creating Wild Earth Lab is to create resources for you, your family, and your students to learn about the Earth and our relationship with it. By combining my background in science with my passions for nature and art, I aim to create unique and beautiful educational resources covering a range of topics related to science, sustainability, and the natural world. I use my colored pencil, pen, and mixed media artwork to create printable diagrams and educational materials to help students notice both the science and natural beauty of the world around them. I hope my resources help make science feel engaging and approachable while also increasing connection to nature.
