Meet the Teacher

Tyler Lucero has connected people to our natural and human heritage as an interpreter at the Genesee Country Village & Museum, a science teacher in the Rochester City School District, a naturalist at West Irondequoit's Helmer Nature Center, and an interpretive ranger at Rocky Mountain National Park. He studied geology and history at Brown University, and has traveled widely to wild and historic places across the United States, but loves the people, landscape, and history of his native Western New York best.

About the Venue

Mendon Ponds Park features unique glacial landforms, crafted by four major glaciers some 12,000 to 14,000 years ago. These glaciers, towering between 5,000 and 10,000 feet, stretched just south of the Pennsylvania border. The park boasts diverse geological features including kames, eskers, kettles, and erratics, while its terrain ranges from gentle slopes to steep drop-offs.
