For Rich, going to the forest is going home, and observing wildlife is making the acquaintance with a neighbor. Seeing the forest as a neighborhood, he brings a community approach to nature guiding by telling stories about the relationships that connect Adirondack wildlife. Rich enjoys birding and hiking, and he relishes every opportunity to learn more about the lives of birds, plants, insects, and other members of the forest community. Rich has an Environmental Studies degree from Penn State, he is a New York State Licensed Guide and he is a Certified Interpretive Guide through the National Association for Interpretation.
