Dr. Nathan Stewart, 2019 Sustainable Educator of the Year
Yampa Valley Sustainability Council Honors CMC Sustainability Studies Associate Professor and Program Chair
Students in the Bachelor of Arts in Sustainability Studies program step toward their careers with internships and work-study jobs thanks to Dr. Nathan Stewart and his colleagues at CMC.
The Yampa Valley Sustainability Council recognized Stewart's contributions and those of five other award recipients.
In addition to teaching and chairing the Sustainability Studies program, Stewart is Program Director for the Rocky Mountain Land Management Internship Program. This innovative, two-year paid internship places CMC students with the U.S. Forest Service. Working collaboratively as land managers, natural resource specialists and mountain sports rangers, the interns have an inside track to possible full-time employment with the Forest Service.
Stewart also helped create local work study opportunities including:
- Yampa Valley Sustainability Council's ReTree and Waste Diversion programs
- Youth education with Friends of the Yampa
- Monitoring air particulate matter and VCAPS planning for Routt County Department of Environmental Health
