Lawrence “DC” Randle’s approach to education is all about environment. Growing up in Washington,D.C., Randle didn’t have much exposure to the natural settings he was studying in class. After graduating from Wartburg with his bachelor’s degree in science education in 1979, he set out to change that experience for his own students. At Saint Francis High School in Minnesota, he took on the challenge of teaching behaviorally challenged students, exposing them to science through experiential learning that included a project to trap and release an endangered turtle. While teaching high school students through environmental work, Randle learned about the Jason Project and was chosen to be one of six educators to take part in the Amazon Exploration Project in 1994. Since 1996, he has been an assistant canopy researcher, conducting studies in herbivory and developing educational programs for high school groups coming into the tropics. Each year, he has brought a group of students to experience a new environment of tropical ecology, indigenous culture, sustainable development and rainforest research in South America.
