Meet Our New Education Coordinator

We are pleased to announce the addition of Maggie Cozens to the Great Hollow team. In her role as Education Coordinator, Maggie will further develop and strategically lead all of Great Hollow’s environmental education programing and summer day-camp, and continue to strengthen our relationships with area schools and other youth organizations. Our science-based environmental education programs are core to our mission in providing children and young adults with unique opportunities to explore and connect with the natural world while learning about the ecology of the environment on which we all depend. Maggie emphasizes field research techniques and exploratory learning in her teaching methods, and joins us with a variety of experience teaching environmental and STEM education to students ranging from Pre-K all the way up to college. She most recently worked for the Living Classrooms Foundation in Baltimore where she developed and instructed marine and coastal science curricula for middle-school students on two-week sailing expeditions between Maryland and Cape Cod. Before that, Maggie led the graduate teaching assistant program for the University of North Carolina’s Environmental Science Department, which involved teaching various introductory and advanced environmental science classes and labs to undergraduates. She holds an M.S. in Environmental Science from the University of North Carolina-Wilmington and a B.A. in International Sustainable Development from Appalachian State University. Originally from Ridgefield, Maggie is happy to be back home in Connecticut as she works to take Great Hollow’s environmental education initiatives to the next level. Keep an eye out for many new children’s programs and events to come!
