About the Instructor
Nancy Greig grew up in Alberta, Canada – a land of long, cold winters and short, relatively cool summers. This was not the ideal place for someone who loves insects and gardening! So she moved south as soon as she could – spending almost two years in Mexico, getting a PhD in tropical plant ecology at UT Austin, and then teaching field courses for a couple of years in Costa Rica. She has been director of the Cockrell Butterfly Center in Houston since 1994. In addition to her work at the museum she helps kids learn about vegetable gardening and keeps bees.
