Honored by: Irvine Ranch Conservancy

David has been a very active docent since July 2007, offering full moon hikes, astronomy programs, and every year a 4th of July fireworks viewing hike. He shares his deep interest in the open space and outer space with those on his programs. David also helps protect the local wildlands through his work as a Fire Watch volunteer. More recently, David and his wife, Suanne, have taken the lead on new programs offered at the Orchard Hills trailhead, close to many new homes in Irvine. We appreciate every way in which David introduces Orange County residents to the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks.
