The Cummer Welcomes Karl Boecklen

Feb

18

New Museum Educator Karl Boecklen

In January, Karl Boecklen joined the education staff as a Museum Educator.  His job will be to continue the integration of the Gardens and our riverfront campus into our arts education programs.  Karl is a native of New York City and a graduate of SUNY-Stony Brook with a degree in the biological sciences.  He has worked as a classroom educator, a scientist and most recently for the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens as their supervisor for educational programs.  At the Zoo, Karl coordinated the outreach, After Dark Programs and animal encounters as well a “tour” as the supervisor for their interactive areas.  He specialized in interdisciplinary programs such as “ZooTrek”, the Zoo’s partnership with the Jacksonville Public Library.

Known throughout the local public school systems as “Mr. Karl”, Karl brings a great enthusiasm and joy to introducing children and adults to the natural world through art, language arts, math, and science.
