David is a corn bred and fed Iowan of 22 years. He currently studies Animal Ecology and Spanish at Iowa State University. After studying in Panama and Costa Rica, a summer in the Boundary Waters is a return to his Midwestern roots. Along with five other corps members, David will be removing invasive plant species from the area with two of mankind’s most efficient tools: his hands. When he isn’t uprooting non-native plant species from Minnesota’s pristine habitat, he also enjoys running, swimming, kayaking, ornithology, and herpetology.
