Russell (Russ) Hedberg is a broadly trained environmental geographer whose research and teaching focus on human-environment systems and sustainability. Russ has particular interests in agroecology and sustainable food systems, with specializations in soil biogeochemistry and local food systems. His current research has three foci: examining how social dynamics in local food systems influence farmer environmental practices, assessing how soil management practices on farms affect soil carbon and phosphorus cycles and fertility, and building regional nutrient recycling systems. Dr. Hedberg also maintains an interest in the Andean regions of South America, where he studied tree line forest cover change in 2012.

I teach courses in Geology, Oceanography, and related fields where my specialty is focused on coastal processes and sea-level rise hazards. I am a faculty researcher at the Chincoteague Bay Field Station and routinely involve students in sustainability projects working on environmental restoration of shorelines in coastal areas. Here on campus, I am actively involved in the Campus Community Farm and have been working on sustainability projects with students to support education and community-outreach.
