I am an Environmental Historian with a particular interest in the history of the Driftless Area, the La Crosse River Marsh, and the Mississippi River. I am known around the area as "The Marsh Guy." I take my students on several field trips to the marsh and have developed a presentation called "A Pictorial History of the La Crosse River Marsh," which I give at UW-L every semester.
