He grew up in Mansfield, graduated from Miami University with a  master's degree in botany, ran an environmental education school in the mountains of Kentucky, is married and has two sons. He is enthusiastic about the natural history of north-central Ohio (especially Mohican), and is constantly working on surveys of local wild plants and birds.

 An Introduction to the Rich Biodiversity of Mohican

The forests of Mohican harbor a wealth of plants and animals. Because of its diverse and unusual habitats, Mohican serves as a crossroad for flora and fauna from north and south. Mohican can be the Canadian north woods, dry Appalachian oak forests and rich central-Ohio forest all rolled into one fantastic park. This program will focus on the stunning and surprising natural history of our Mohican backyard.
