Darin Radatz, Manchester CLC Program Coordinator

Darin is a SCA NH Corps alum (2011) and has wanted to come back to the area ever since. He was hired on to the NH Corps team in January to manage the four new leaders of SCA Manchester Community Leadership Corps (Manchester CLC).  Darin has been with the SCA for quite a few years now, enjoying many of the different programs offered. These include trail crews in the Rocky Mountains of Idaho and Utah, a 6 month stint working on the Pacific Crest Trail in southern California, and a leader crew working on the North Country Trail. He has also lead high school students as a National High School Crew Leader in the gigantic Redwoods of California’s Pacific coast and as a Community Crew Leader with the Manchester CLC Program. In addition to his SCA experiences, Darin has also worked for Conservation Corps Iowa as a Field Specialist helping to train and support multiple young adult crews.  If you were to ask Darin where he is from, he would point to the inside of his right hand on the outside knuckle of thumb. This represents the town of Port Huron Michigan, which also was the boyhood home to Thomas Edison. After attending four difficult colleges including the University of the Philippines Los Banos, Darin received his BS from Michigan State University in Natural Resource Management. Outside of conservation work, Darin enjoys perfecting his magic shows and writing fan articles for his favorite professional sports team – the Detroit Lions.
