Shari L. Wilson's Blog

You can browse through entries from Shari's complete historical blog archives here.

Shari L. Wilson grew up in Claflin, Kansas, a small town located on the Central Flyway and next to Cheyenne Bottoms, a Wetland of International Importance. Shari now lives in the Muncie area of Kansas City, Kansas, with her husband, Chris Steineger, and their cat, Bailey. Her many areas of interest include traveling, hiking, gardening, and reading.

Her favorite getaway as a child was her grandparents’ farm in north central Kansas. There Shari learned important facts of working on the farm, such as that there are times when a 6-year-old should not stand their ground against a charging cow, you can put out a wheat truck fire with beer, and there is no friend in the world like your farm dog. As a part-owner of that farm now, she finds that the connections between rural and urban Kansas are more important than ever.

Shari is an ecologist and environmental educator. She currently works for the Kansas Association for Conservation and Environmental Education (KACEE) as statewide partnerships and planning director (although her views in her blog are her own). She is in charge of strategic planning, the annual Kansas Environmental Education Conference, and numerous grant projects as well as KACEE’s new Kansas Green Schools Program. Shari also serves as vice-chair of the Kansas Wildlife & Parks Commission and on the boards of the Kansas Humanities Council and Kansas Historical Society. She was the recipient of the Conservation Achievements Program's Educator of the Year Award for 2009, given by the Kansas Wildlife Federation.

Over the years, she has roamed much of the world as a fellow, conference speaker, and traveler. Visiting more than 25 countries in Europe, South Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and East Asia has resulted in a tremendous impact on her outlook on the world and issues in the United States. Countries making a huge impression include Cuba, Cambodia, and India, although each visit creates new ways of thinking about the arts, politics, environment, education, and the way we interact with each other. These interactions, between urban and rural Kansans, Kansas and the rest of the United States, and the U.S. and the rest of the world, provide plenty of fodder for her blog.

We're just absolutely delighted that Shari finds time in her full and interesting schedule to share her thoughts and ideas with us. She can be reached by leaving comments on her blog posts or by contacting her at sharilea51 at gmail dot com.

She also writes at Kansas Free Press.

Shari welcomes you to read her blog here.
