So who is David Stokes?

He is that guy with the gray beard and bald head who happens to be a Wisconsin Association for Environmental Education Teacher of the Year and an “Aldo Leopold” award winner. The Northshore United Educators (WEAC) honored David for educational excellence.

David has received the Master Front-line Interpreter award from the National Association for Interpretation. He sings and engages audiences of all ages in nature study.

Using live creatures and animal artifacts, songs and short stories, David gets down with his audiences, and makes learning fun.

David has a solid educational background in the natural
sciences, holding an Masters of Science in Conservation
Education from Michigan State University. He has been creating
exciting learning situations since 1974.

David's Philosophy? I believe in entertaining while educating.

I believe no one is too old to get involved. The secret to life is to participate.

It is never too late to have a happy childhood!

I believe in hands-on/minds-on learning.

The most powerful nation in the world is IMAGINATION!
