Alexander M. Koch is fascinated by the natural world, history, and the Maine woods. He seeks to make connections between the past and the present, and his research magnifies the importance of the Maine woods and its effects on life in the 19th and early 20th centuries until today.

As a non-traditional student at Unity College studying Parks & Forest Resources his academic career connects deeply to his love of history and the Maine woods.

Most recently Alexander is the first prize winner of the 2017 National Collegiate Book Collecting Contest for his submission “The Breath and Breadth of the Maine Woods.

And if you cannot find Alexander Koch he’s probably out in the woods somewhere listening for Bicknell’s thrush or studying the apothecia of a lichen.
