The Bryce Canyon Natural History Association has hired Caitlin Scully as its new education specialist in charge of education and outreach programing, running social media, and assisting with interpretive events.
Ms. Scully brings to the job five years experience teaching at the Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego. She also worked as the Education and Outreach Officer onboard the JOIDES Resolution Ocean Drilling Research Vessel, a position that required remote teaching for over two months at sea. Previously, Ms. Scully worked with several non-profit organizations, studied killer whale acoustics, and did field research with dolphins in New Zealand.
“I am infectiously enthusiastic about geology and ecology,” Ms. Scully said. “This passion, combined with my strong science and teaching background, will help the Bryce Canyon Natural History Association expand their impact locally and beyond.”
Ms. Scully completed her Masters Degree in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego. Her topic of study was the Hoodoo forming Claron Formation of Bryce Canyon National Park, and the ancient climate record hidden within. She also has a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies with a minor in International Relations from University of San Diego. She is originally from Connecticut.
Bryce Canyon Natural History Association is a non-profit organization created to aid the interpretive, educational and scientific activities of the National Park Service, at Bryce Canyon National Park and the USDA Forest Service on the Dixie National Forest.
