Research Interests

Angie Moline is trained as an aquatic ecologist and her research focuses on the conservation and management of desert streams and springs. Dr. Moline is also interested in how experiential education pedagogy and field experiences shape students' attitudes, perceptions, and understanding of environmental issues. As such, she weaves the landscape and ecology of the Colorado Plateau throughout her classes because students demonstrate a deeper level of understanding when academic topics are connected to this fascinating place. Dr. Moline has taught field-based courses across the western USA and Mexico for NAU, the Wild Rockies Field Institute, Prescott College, and Outward Bound.  She currently serves as the director of the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program @NAU and is a former director of the Grand Canyon Semester and Summer Conservation Experience.
