I was a crew member on the first crew of the modern DRC back in 2003. We worked in the Rand Mountains as well as northeastern California. After that I was distracted by other field jobs: trail in Minnesota, bunnies in Pennsylvania, birds in the San Francisco bay area, weasels in the Sierra Nevada. I returned to the DRC in 2009 to lead the Rands VI and Rands VII. This season will be my first with WildCorps and I’m excited to create WildCorps XI with these four other folks.
