Chenille's Environmental Explorations

A blog featuring interdisciplinary and curious topics in science



Chenille Williams is an environmental educator, freelance science writer, and published researcher. With a background in environmental resources management and a curiosity about the inner workings of the natural world she seeks to excite and inform others about things that are really cool. Not just like, “Oh, Chenille thinks this is cool,” but, topics and ecological states that strive to be given the Mollie Webster/ Jad Abumrad/Robert Krulwich seal of approval.
