Lincoln Larson

Assistant Professor

I am the leader of a conservation social science research lab where all of our human dimensions research, teaching, and outreach efforts are designed to promote sustainable human-environment interactions and foster healthy relationships between people, parks, and nature. We focus on questions that relate to three broad themes: natural resource management and conservation, outdoor recreation and health, and environmental education and stewardship. Public engagement and science communication is a critical aspect of all the work that we do. I am particularly interested in the broader learning and conservation outcomes that emerge from volunteer participation in citizen science, ultimately exploring the diverse ways that participatory projects can benefit both science and society.
