How long have you volunteered at Metroparks?
I have been a volunteer for Metroparks Toledo for 13 years.

My wife and I have put down roots in the Toledo area. We have a daughter and granddaughter who live here so we want the area to continue to grow and thrive.

Why do you volunteer at Metroparks?
I believe in the Metroparks mission and vision statements and want to do what I can to support them.

Your favorite park, trail or activity at Metroparks?
I have spent more time hiking and birding in Oak Openings Preserve than anywhere else over the last 35 years and I love the place.

What would people be surprised to know about you?
My great-great grandfather worked on the Miami and Erie Canal, first in final stages of construction and then for several seasons on a boat. Long before I heard about that I had a spiritual connection with the Towpath Trail.
