Greg Fizzell, program director for the University of Idaho (U-Idaho) McCall Outdoor Science School (MOSS), is helping to coordinate K-12 education efforts for the NARA project. The MOSS program is focused on K-12 students and teacher professional development.
Fizzell began his career in the environment by working as a field forester and biologist in Illinois, Oregon and Washington. In addition to trees, he has also studied neotropical migrant birds in the forests and on the prairie of Illinois and has tracked Northern Goshawks in the pine forests of central Oregon. He co-founded MOSS, a residential education center that integrates the outdoors into K-12 science education, prepares graduate students as master science educators and provides outreach to communities in Idaho and the Northwest.
He holds a M.S. in forest resources from University of Idaho and a B.S. in forestry from the University of Illinois. In addition to his work at University of Idaho, Fizzell coordinated community environmental education projects for nonprofit organizations in Northern Idaho for over a decade.
