CBF Educator Thomas Komir.Tenure at CBF: Spring 2012-Present

Education:  Shepherd University, BA History

Thomas enjoyed spending most of his time outdoors in the woods and creeks near Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, where he grew up. At an early age he learned to appreciate Mother Nature, understand the fragility and interconnectivity of our environment, and developed a passion for environmental conservation.

After college, Thomas began educating students and adults about local watershed issues and organized outdoor recreational events as the Education and Outreach Coordinator with the Juniata Clean Water Partnership in Huntingdon. He decided to continue with environmental education in Paraguay with the Peace Corps. As an Environmental Education Volunteer he worked on developing and practicing new environmental and nutritional curriculum with teachers and students, implementing sustainable organic gardening and composting projects, and liaising with an environmental NGO in improving operational methods.

After returning from South America, Thomas was introduced to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation as a Seasonal Field Educator at the Karen Noonan Center. He is excited to remain on the island staff at Port Isobel!
