Executive Director

Michael Kieffer

Michael Kieffer, a native of Amherst, N.Y., is a summa cum laude graduate of the State University of New York College at Fredonia, with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology and a minor in chemistry. As an undergrad, he conducted research on snails; tutored biology, chemistry, ecology, and physics courses for the campus Learning Center; and was a teaching assistant for biology and zoology labs.

Michael spent the next five years as a naturalist for the Piedmont Environmental Center (PEC) in High Point, N.C. At PEC, Michael and two naturalists led more than 12,000 students, kindergarten through twelfth grade, each year through cultural and natural history interpretation, environmental awareness and issue education, and conservation education field experiences.

Michael specialized in targeting environmental education programs toward high school A.P. students and special education students of all ages, and initiated adult programming for special interest groups including the mentally retarded and the hearing and visually impaired.

In addition, Michael led backpacking ecotours throughout the southern Appalachians. During his off time, he acted as the volunteer advisor of the Common Vision Self-Advocacy group for The Arc of High Point.

Michael became executive director of BRMC in March 2000.
