Dave was born and raised in the wilds of Northern Michigan.  Nature was his classroom and his love of nature grew from that experience.

He joined the Naturalists’ Club of Springfield in the 1980’s and became President of the club in 1988.  Leading many field trips, he enjoys sharing his love of nature with everyone.  He also leads historical and natural history trips for many nature organizations throughout New England.
