George Hess @ NC State University
Working to conserve green infrastructure in suburbanizing areas and to keep people connected with nature, using an integrated program of research, teaching, and service.
Green Infrastructure Research
Exciting Research.  Green infrastructure is the network of unbuilt space that conserves natural functions in cities.   Through the active engagement of students with community partners, we work to increase the use of science-based information in planning.
Engaged Learning
Engaged Learning.  My students work with local land management agencies in learning environments that develop the whole person by combining technical material with professional development in teamwork, leadership, and communication.
Responsive Advising

Responsive Advising.  Whether you're a prospective undergraduate student interested in our Natural Resource programs, a current student seeking guidance, or a graduate student looking for opportunities, I'm happy to talk with you ... smile included.

Who is this guy?

Who is this guy?  After 10 years in software engineering, I went back to school to develop a career around conservation. Working at NC State, I discovered I loved teaching. So I found ways to integrate research into my teaching using community-engaged approaches.
Cycling
Cycling is a life-long passion. I ride for transportation, health, and just for the joy of it! We've made progress, but this region could be a better place for cyclists. I favor increased education and integration of cyclists into the traffic stream.
Photography
Photography.   I've been involved in photography since age 10, including a short stint as a feature photographer in Prescott, Arizona. This passion allows me to see and share things from different perspectives. Each month, I post a new image in this space.
