Anya Butt has taught at Central College since 2002, taking over the environmental studies program and growing it into a more dynamic, applied program. She brings to the program experience working with soil erosion in Kenya, climate change in the Antarctic ecosystems and stream restoration in the Lake Tahoe Basin.
