Educate. Empower. Act. The mission of Project WET is to reach children, parents, educators and communities of the world with water education. We invite you to join us in educating children about the most precious resource on the planet — water.
David Haskell, biologist and author of the 2012 Natural History Literature award-winning book The Forest Unseen, is one of the plenary session leaders at the 16th Annual Project WET USA Water Education Conference in Denver in August.
In addition receiving great acclaim for The Forest Unseen, which was favorably reviewed in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Kirkus and elsewhere, Dr. Haskell has also been recognized for his teaching methods:
His classes have received national attention for the innovative ways in which they combine scientific exploration, contemplative practice, and action in the community. In 2009, the Carnegie and CASE Foundations named him Professor of the Year for Tennessee, an award given to college professors of who have achieved national distinction and whose work shows "extraordinary dedication to undergraduate teaching." The Oxford American featured him in 2011 as one of the southern U.S.'s most creative teachers and his teaching has been profiled in USA Today, The Tennesseean, and other newspapers.
Professor of Biology at the University of the South, Dr. Haskell holds degrees from the University of Oxford (B.A. in Zoology) and Cornell University (Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology).
