Ty Minton founded Antioch University New England's Department of Environmental Studies in 1972. He has been an environmental educator for nearly four decades with a primary interest in teaching field ecology, flora, and environmental science. From Whole Terrain's beginning through 2001, Ty created each distinctive cover, and for the first five issues also produced its interior artwork. As an artist, he is interested in using the visual arts to communicate about environmental issues and to highlight the special qualities of our fellow creatures around the globe.
