Notes from the Field

Earth Expeditions, Hawai'i

Exploring the living landscape of Hawai'i Volcanoes Nat’l Park

Kelle Price

Elementary School Teacher from Elkhart, Indiana

"Time and time again, our discussions with the native people of Hawai'i showed the passion and concern that they have for the island. Their fire lit one in me, and I have been able to bring that fire back home, starting in my classroom. I learned what an article couldn’t describe. The Hawaiian people truly gave me a deeper understanding of their culture, and how communities connect with science."
