Welcome to Eric Butler's homepage
Devoted to building links between geology and education in order to make earth science accessable and worthwhile for everyone.
Man's years fall short of a hundred;
a thousand years of worry crowd his heart.
If the day is short and you hate the long night,
why not take the torch and go wandering?
Seek out happiness in season;
who can wait for the coming year?
Fools who cling too fondly to gold
earn no more than posterity's jeers.
-old Chinese poem, author anonymous
LATEST NEWS: I finished my Master's degree at the University of Vermont in May 2004, after spending three years working in the Geology Department on numerous geoscience education projects and teaching science at various levels. After that, I took a year off and worked at a unique stationery and gift shop in Burlington, Vermont, and pursued hobbies new and old. In April, I am moving to Virginia to do some seasonal geology work at Shenandoah National Park. To learn more about my work and interests, follow the links below.
