Dr. Michelle Moorman, Director

Since she was young, Michelle has had an appreciation of the great outdoors, especially the creeks and lakes where she spent her childhood.  This passion led her to major in Geography and Recreation Administration at UNC-Chapel Hill.  Subsequently, while working for the U.S. Geological Survey, her interests became focused in the arena of water science and stream ecology.  She recently received a M.S. in Marine Science and Ph.D. in Natural Resources at North Carolina State University, where her research ranged from the impact of invasive beavers and trout on native fish in the Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve to the implementation of a community-based watershed management plan in Valdivia, Chile.
