Cully Shelton, Interpretive Programs Manager

Inspiring the Next Generation

As a child, Cully spent many weeks each year traveling to Baraboo, Wis. with his family and friends to camp, hike, canoe, and explore. During this time, he discovered a passion for teaching others about the outdoors. Through his work at the International Crane Foundation (ICF), Cully hopes to continue to inspire the next generation of conservation heroes, while working alongside the conservation heroes of today. Cully received a B.S in Outdoor Education (Natural History/Interpretation Concentration) and a minor in Environmental Education from Northland College (Ashland, WI). Cully has worked at the Cable Natural History Museum (Cable, WI) as a Naturalist; Living History Farms (Des Moines, IA) as a Historical Interpretive Intern; and Northland College (Ashland, WI) as an Adventure Program Leader. Cully currently supervises and manages the interpretive programs at ICF, including public/private tours, school field trips, outreach events/programs, exhibitions, and interpretive signage/messaging.
