Dr. Jonathan Hicks

Minnesota State University
Assistant Professor
Department of Recreation, Parks, & Leisure Services
Prior to moving to Minnesota in 2016, I spent my entire life in Illinois. A former environmental educator in my hometown of Rockford, wildlife has always been at the center of both my work and play. My research broadly considers human-wildlife interactions and how people come to make meaning of their experiences. In recent years, I began studying how emotion impacts our views of wildlife and came to find that awe is central to much of how we grow to appreciate the creatures we live, hike, and paddle alongside. I love hearing people tell stories about wildlife, and if you bump into me at the conference, I hope you will share yours!
