Welcome To The Outback, Thomas P. Arbour's
Home On The Web

Hello, I'm Tom Arbour, and thanks for visiting The Outback!

This Page is all about myself, and my three month long trip I took in 1999 with Hiram College. The Trip was truly the experience of a lifetime!
In January 2006, I began a blog called "Buckeye State" Check it out for even more recent updates about myself, and what I think are unique observations about the world around us.

Who Is Tom Arbour?

Hi! This can somtimes be a hard question to answer! I am a graduate of Hiram College, in Hiram Ohio, Magna Cum Laude, Departmental Honors in Environmental Studies. I have always been interested in plants, animals, the environment, and the natural world, so environmental studies at Hiram was a perfect match for me. After Hiram, I attended Miami University completing a Master Of Environmental Science professional degree program in December 2005. I concentrated my studies in applied ecology and resource analysis.

I am currently an Ecologist and GIS analyst with the Ohio Natural Heritage Program of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Natural Areas and Preserves . Formerly, I was a graduate assistant at Miami University, and I was responsible for the upkeep of the Institute's web page and computer lab. During my undergraduate years, I interned with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Natural Areas and Preserves. I worked in the northeast field office, and I assisted the preserve manager with invasive species control, endangered and threatened species management, trail and facilities maintenance, and I led interpretive nature hikes.

To say that I have a wide variety of interests would be an understatement. In my free time, I enjoy exploring the natural areas of Ohio. I enjoy outdoor photography and hiking. I play the piano, guitar, and trombone, and I am true Cleveland sports fan, as I support the Cavs, Indians, and Browns.
