About the Instructors:
Nicole DeLizzio is the Arborist Assistant at the Mt. Cuba Center. She holds a BS in Agriculture and Natural Resources with a minor in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation from the University of Delaware. Nicole is an ISA certified arborist. In addition to co-teaching the Ecological Arboriculture course with the rest of the arboriculture team, she can be found sharing her combined passion for trees and art in pyrography, or the art of woodburning. One of Nicole’s favorite ecological gardening concepts is to allow trees to decay in place, when it is safe to do so, to be utilized by wildlife.

Maria Phillips is  an artist and art therapist from Philadelphia, PA with a background in woodworking and printmaking. After a hiking trip to Glen Onoko Falls, she began wood-burning wildflowers and ferns. Using nature as the canvas, she hopes to encourage others to reflect on their relationship with the environment.
