Urban Ecologist and Educator
Growing up in rural Maine, Gabriel Willow fell in love with nature, especially the birds who flocked through his family's property. After traveling the country and earning an ecology degree, he wound up in New York, working for the bird-loving Audubon society. In his tours and classes, he combines his extensive knowledge of nature with an erudite command of local history, earning the attention of such outlets as the New York Times and the New Yorker with his idiosyncratically educational outings.
