My name is Zack Neher, and I am an undergraduate Ecology and Evolutionary Biology major at the University of Colorado.  I’ve spent the last few years working part time at the Morrison Natural History Museum, and just spent the spring semester of 2016 on the Semester at Sea study abroad program.  I’ve been blogging for the last few years, but recently decided that my blog needed a makeover and a fresh start.

My primary interests are paleontology and natural history, but I find a lot of other things interesting, as well.  From everything that I’ve ever learned about learning, I believe that making connections is one of the best ways to learn about something new.  If you can connect a topic to something that you understand better, it will take less time and energy to understand.
