After a 32-year career as a wildlife biologist and administrator with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Mark retired to Western North Carolina and have found a new life and commitment to our beautiful region through volunteering with Conserving Carolina. In 2013, Mark joined the Stewardship Committee and have served on the Board since 2014. Mark’s wife of 42 years Joani loves the outdoors in all its forms and is also an active supporter of Conserving Carolina. Together, they enjoy exploring the vast network of public and conserved lands in their “backyard” and hope to contribute in some small way to the protection of this natural wonderland for future generations.
