Ross Curry – Education Intern

Hi! My name is Ross Curry, and I am an Education Intern here at Reiman Gardens. I am going into my junior year at Iowa State University studying Animal Ecology. I have enjoyed leading groups in the past, and I count these as some of my favorite memories. Reiman Gardens creates a wonderful learning opportunity for both myself and all of our visitors.

My favorite part of the tours is the active learning style. Instead of simply telling people information, I guide them through the learning process. Our visitors come from every walk of life, and I love helping them find out what they already know! Our teaching style is not like a lecture or test. Our youth and adult activities engage visitors and inspire a greater appreciation of the outdoors. Every visit is an adventure, for both our visitors and our staff, and I look forward to continuing my adventure with Reiman Gardens.
