Geoffrey Tarbox

Intern Geoffrey Tarbox grew up in New Hampshire. He was active in a 4-H conservation group through all grades in school, when he compiled a wildflower journal containing several hundred New England flora species. At Texas A&M he specialized in conservation biology. Until signing on with Operation Migration in 2009, Geoff worked on an "exotic plant strike team" based in the Florida Keys. (That means he goes after invasive plants.) He likes hiking, searching out unique wildflowers, fly fishing, bike riding, and occasionally kayaking. He REALLY likes playing video games. This is his third migration, and his great understanding of young cranes makes him a valuable member of the team.

Journey North is pleased to feature this educational adventure made possible by the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP).
