Carl Wozniak, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor in the School of Education, Leadership, and Public Service at Northern Michigan University. He has also taught science for the Grosse Pointe Public Schools and ran education programs for the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History for almost a decade prior to that. Carl is married to Debra Morley and has two adult children, Ben and Erica.
Wozniak says, “The natural beauty of the Upper Peninsula is one of its greatest draws. As an educator I have found that helping individuals develop an understanding of the natural world has been a driving force for me, because in doing so I learn more, too. Our environment is the perfect laboratory, and joining the MooseWood Nature Center’s board was a natural progression for me to work with other community members in learning about and showcasing this little corner of our globe.”
The MooseWood Board of Directors would like to thank our former members, Bob Kahl and Linda O’Brien. Our Board members and volunteers’ commitment and energy keep your Nature Center going.
Kahl joined the Board shortly after MooseWood was established. He worked at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in lamprey control and has had a deep interest and love of wildlife sharing his knowledge and passion with children visiting the Center. He also helped with bird box building programs for many years along with the plantings on the Pool to Pond project. Bob was truly dedicated to making MooseWood a significant education institution in Marquette.
A transplant to Marquette, O’Brien joined the board with a teaching background and right away jumped in with her energetic enthusiasm for working with children and peers with similar interests. Most recently, Linda kept the Board informed on the financials and keeping MooseWood on track with the State.
It was a pleasure serving on the Board with Bob and Linda and we wish them all the best in their future endeavors.
