Environmental Studies on the Piedmont (ES) is a research, education and conservation organization headquartered on a 914-acre field station, just north of Warrenton, Virginia, in the Northern Piedmont. With upland forest, meadow, wetland, vernal pool, stream, pond and small lake habitats, the ES field station is a rich resource for indigenous plant and wildlife studies.

Dr. Wood is Associate Professor of Integrative and Interdisciplinary Studies in the School of Integrative Studies (SIS) at George Mason University and has been with SIS since 1996.  He created the Smithsonian Mason Semester and directed the development of Mason's joint program with the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute.  Currently he serves as Director of Environmental Studies on the Piedmont, a research station near campus.
