About Us

The Naturalist Outreach Program is based at Cornell University where Dr. Linda S. Rayor (Dept. Entomology) trains Cornell students in how to do effective scientific outreach and informal science education.  The Naturalist Outreach students act as a speakers bureau going into classrooms, after school programs, and community groups to give presentations on natural history, ecology, and conservation issues.  We give talks within a 45-min radius of Ithaca, NY, but can occasionally give presentations in other parts of NY and surrounding states.
