David’s experiences with Tin Mountain Conservation Center stretches back to the early 1980’s while he was teaching sixth grade at Conway Elementary School. He fondly remembers the joy and excitement a simple field trip to the Saco River flowing through the meadow behind the school would evoke in his students. He also recalls hacking out rampant juniper at the nascent Tamworth summer camp site, telling stories at the original Halloween Hoots in Jackson, and dropping his son off for his first Nature Nuts summer session.

Since then, he taught at and eventually retired from Kennett High School and now teaches history and humanities courses at White Mountain Community College. He has also traveled extensively, most intensively on a sabbatical that found him circling the globe over the course of 10 months.

He continues to enjoy our wondrous natural world avidly hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and listening to the crickets at night and loons flying overhead as they head to nearby Silver Lake. He has been on the Tin Mountain Board of Trustees since the fall of 2016.
