David Larson

Hardwick, Massachusetts

David grew up in western Connecticut where public land is few and far between, but present. Through the years he has had experiences on both public and private land, but has been particularly shaped by those opportunities to explore the lands all New Englander's have access to. These experiences have shaped the person he is today.

Tom Wansleben

Greenfield, Massachusetts

Toms understanding of the importance of conservation began at a young age while chasing waterfowl, fishing and camping with his father and lab in the Connecticut River Valley of New Hampshire. After graduating college with bachelor’s degree in Natural Sciences and later a Master’s in Conservation Biology, he headed out west to Arizona, Idaho and Wyoming to conduct bird research for the US Forest Service and to chase epic stonefly hatches, deep powder and big mountains.   After returning to New England he spent a decade working on land conservation and land stewardship for the Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust.  Currently Tom resides in Greenfield MA where he now works as a Habitat Biologist for the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (MassWildlife).  When he’s not creating wildlife habitat on public land, Tom is feeding healthy outdoor addictions like deer, turkey and waterfowl hunting along with fly fishing, gardening and studying forestry any chance he can get.



Dan Gardoqui

York, Maine

Dan lives in the Agamenticus region of the southern Maine. Back in the late 1900's, he co-founded White Pine Programs (a nature-connection nonprofit) - where he's served as Executive Director since. As a teenager, Dan became a naturalist and a teacher. In college, he took up hunting, putting his tracking skills to the test. He became a Registered Maine Guide to lead adventures in the wilds of Maine (which was good for breaking up the office work). Dan is crazy about the language of birds and passes as an above average bird mimic. Dan's contributed to many citizen science wildlife projects - usually involving his students. While not navigating the treacherous landscape of nonprofit management, Dan loves spending time trail running, cycling, making music and being a dad to his awesome boys.
