The good ones... the real deal... They're not heroes because of   

          what they have  that we don't ...

They are heroes because

          of what they do with it.

It matters who you are."

(Agent Phil Coulson, Shield S1E1)

Meet Beth Anne Moonstone
Welcome! This website is a hub for all the many diverse things I do and love. I hope you will take a moment to visit some of my other spaces. 
I am an environmental and science educator, a college professor, a midwife, a strength athlete, and a strength coach. I love board games, superhero movies, sci-fi fantasy books, loud music, gardening, creating things, and hiking the trails through woods and up mountains. 
Why PeaceFrog? 
From 1987-1994, I ran a computer bulletin board system (BBS) based on the themes of environmental activism, comic books, video games and dungeons & dragons. BBS were pre internet forum based servers where people called in on a phone line and modem and left messages back and forth. Through that community I met my best friend and partner (of the last 28 years) and several of my oldest and most treasured friends. The PeaceFrog community planted a seed for so many places where my live has blossomed. I am eternally grateful.
Experiential Environmental & Science Education
I am an experienced environmental and science educator who strives to  design classroom and field experiences that develop ecoliteracy alongside a strong understanding of the science of ecology and living systems. My experience teaching adults, teens and children has allowed me to work with a wide range of learning styles and age groups. I have a commitment to fostering supportive learning communities, bioregional studies, systems thinking, sustainability, place based learning, phenology/climate science and watershed ecology.
