The ACE Education staff is led by Mir, our Environmental Education
Director who holds a B.A. in Biology and a Masters Degree in Environmental Education, and is a NC Certified Environmental Educator.

All of the ACE Education Educators are dedicated professionals who have a great enthusiasm for the natural world and enjoy spending time teaching children in an outdoor setting. In order to provide excellence
for students participating in ACE Education field trips, all ACE Education Educators take part in two training periods annually. Most of the ACE Education Educators are either enrolled or have achieved the status of being a NC Certified Environmental Educator.

Teacher / Student Ratio:
Many things in the environment are best experienced in small groups. For that reason, we have activity groups ranging in size from 10-15 students per instructor.
