Changes at IFS

Going back to the beginning of IFS in 1970, Dr. Walter (Ben) Bohl has served as Executive Director of the organization.  During these 45 years, this organization through Ben's leadership has touched thousands of students, teachers, staff, researchers, and others who share his vision for interdisciplinary educational experiences outside of the classroom.  Thank you Ben for your many years of service and dedication to IFS.  The IFS Board of Directors in November named Ben as Executive Director Emeritus in honor of his leadership, devotion, and service to IFS.
The IFS Board of Directors has hired Lindsey Christ to serve as the new Executive Director.  She comes to IFS with a background in non-profit management, a Master’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Ecology from the University of Florida, and extensive teaching experience from K-12 grades through to the college level in Environmental Education.  She is excited for the future of IFS and the potential to grow and expand reaching thousands more with the field study experience at Forfar Field Station honoring Ben Bohl’s legacy.  She would love to hear from you at
