BIO - Jeffrey Train is the founder of Mr. Train’s Life Lessons for Better Birding & Beyond: a curriculum-driven program seeking to inspire families and young naturalists to discover the wonder of birds.  Mr. Train welcomes viewers into his world of wonder by introducing them to the birds inhabiting his neighborhood (Hoboken, NJ).  Through lessons celebrating the mysteries of nature and the practices of positive psychology, Mr. Train empowers people to discover the joy and gratitude surrounding Hoboken.
