Who we are
The Stream is authored by the faculty of Middlebury School of the Environment. We are in the process of hiring our full complement of faculty, so new voices and perspectives will be added in the coming weeks.
Steve Trombulak (Director)
Steve Trombulak holds the Professorship of Environmental and Biosphere Studies at Middlebury College in Vermont, where he has been on the faculty since 1985. His teaching and research interests are in the fields of conservation biology, environmental science, and natural history. He is the author or editor of several articles and books, including The Story of Vermont: a natural and cultural history and, most recently, Landscape-scale Conservation Planning. He is one of the founders of the Ghana Antelope Project, a non-profit organization working to promote community-scale captive-rearing of native antelope in Ghana, West Africa, for the conservation of both cultural heritage and wildlife, as well as science education in local public schools. He is a founding member of the Natural History Network and is the editor of its Journal of Natural History Education and Experience. Over the last 30 years he has participated in numerous conservation organizations and initiatives, including the Biodiversity Working Group of the Northern Forest Lands Council; the Vermont Biodiversity Project; the Board of Governors for the Society for Conservation Biology; and Two Countries, One Forest, a confederation of conservation organizations dedicated to landscape-scale conservation planning in the Northern Appalachian region of the U.S. and Canada.
His greatest passions, however, are directed toward his teaching. At Middlebury College he teaches Conservation Biology, Natural Science and the Environment, Vertebrate Natural History, MiddCORE, and the Environmental Studies senior seminar. He has served as both director of the Environmental Studies Program and the chair of the Biology Department. Currently, he is the director of the Middlebury School of the Environment.
