Collin Knauss

Collin has joined the NPT staff as the full-time Youth Programs Coordinator, after a successful stint in our internship program. He graduated from Colorado College in May, 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in biology. During college, Collin studied at the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory and the University of Massachusetts--Boston, where he researched and completed a senior honors thesis on the denitrification potential of a permeable reactive barrier on Cape Cod, MA. How do you top that (let alone spell it)?

To complement his studies, Collin became a huge enthusiast of the spectacular Colorado outdoors and led several backpacking trips throughout the southwest. Collin ran one of Colorado College’s largest volunteer groups, mentoring at-risk middle school boys in Colorado Springs. Collin brings a dynamic array of skills to NPT and looks forward to strengthening the youth programs with Billy Schrack and the rest of the team.
