He is frequently invited to teach audiences of all ages about the people and lands connected to these products.

Dr. Hayes-Bohanan has visited or lived in Brazil, Canada, Cabo Verde, Cuba, Guatemala, Hungary, Jamaica, Jordan, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Romania, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America.
Project EarthView Interns
Bridgewater State University students are also essential members of the EarthView team. New students are selected to work with Project EarthView each semester. They bring fresh perspectives as geography and education majors, and also help to keep the EarthView program running smoothly.
