Dr. Ed Price teaches Environmental and Resource Science courses at Nevada State College. While growing up with cows on a farm in the hills of north Georgia, Dr. Price learned to appreciate the outdoors. He has been studying nature ever since.
After earning B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Georgia and a Ph.D. in geology from Washington State University, he spent several years in petroleum resource exploration and technology in Alaska, China, and Colorado. Before coming to NSC, Dr. Price performed geologic studies of nuclear waste storage sites in Washington State and environmental restoration research of the nuclear bomb testing sites near Las Vegas.
Dr. Price's hobby is collecting photographs of environmental topics during his travels to show students. At NSC he teaches Introductory Environmental Science, Geology, Conservation Biology, Environmental Pollution, Hydrology, Soils, Geography, Regional and Global Issues, and Special Topics courses involving student field research.
