Seasonal Naturalists

This week, the staff at the Francis Beidler Forest welcomed the seasonal naturalists for the spring. Peter Schwantes (left in the image) and Brad Dalton will guide school groups around the boardwalk, lead canoe trips, help with Spring Break Camp, make nature presentations to school and community groups, assist in the maintenance of Beidler Forest, and contribute to the improvement of all of Beidler Forest's programs.

Peter hails from Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin and is earning a degree in Wildlife Management and Biology from the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point. Peter enjoys being outdoors, most recently in Alaska, and will try any extreme sport imaginable.
Brad is from Williamston, SC and earned a degree in Biology from Anderson University. Brad has worked as a camp staff member for five years and had studied wildlife and ecology in a variety of places including Panama and the Galapagos Islands.
We welcome Peter and Brad and look forward to their contributions to the educational programming here at the Francis Beidler Forest.
