Crossroads at Big Creek has welcomed Corey Batson as its new program director.
Batson has a master of natural resources degree with an emphasis in environmental education and science communications from the University of Idaho, as well as extensive experience in curriculum development, teaching students of all ages, field research and social-media management. They are also a licensed falconer and maintain certifications as an interpretive guide and wilderness first responder. While in college, Batson founded and directed the Urban Interface, a nonprofit dedicated to the well-being of wildlife, people and the inevitable interaction between them.
“We are very excited to welcome Corey to the Crossroads team,” said Laurel Hauser, executive director. “Their experience and education will give breadth and depth to the educational programming we’re able to provide, both to area schools and to the community.”
