David Brown was born and grew up in Malden, Massachusetts, in an area surrounded by forest, rock outcrop and wetland. His lifelong interest in natural history began while roaming these woods as a boy. An avid birder from the age of twelve when he was stunned by the beauty of a Baltimore oriole that flew over his house, he once hiked ten miles to see a rare bird reported in a metropolitan park near Boston. He is a graduate of Tufts University with a B.A. in English, a decorated Marine veteran of the Viet Nam conflict and a public school teacher of 20 years experience. Today he operates a wildlife services business and writes on natural history subjects and issues.

David is a lifelong naturalist and teacher whose interest in animal tracks and sign began in the early 1980s. He studied the field for six years before starting to present tracking programs himself through his company, David Brown’s Wildlife Services. Since then he has amassed a collection of thousands of high-resolution photographs of wildlife sign that serve as the principal resource for indoor programs as well as for the images that appear on the Trackards, The Companion Guide to Trackards for North American Mammals and The Next Step: Interpreting Animal Tracks, Trails and Sign. In addition to tracking programs, he has also conducted dozens of wildlife inventories for public and private landholders and has served as a wildlife education consultant to environmental institutions. He is currently working on a book dealing with the interpretation of animal behavior with the use of animal sign.

David Brown regularly presents tracking and other wildlife interpretive programs in the New England area through David Brown’s Wildlife Services. Please visit his website: www.dbwildlife.com for a seasonal schedule. Appearances and presentations for sponsoring organizations may be arranged through the website as well. Reimbursement for travel to venues distant from central Massachusetts is requested.

The author’s books, published by McDonald & Woodward, will be available at all programs. At sponsored presentations they may be purchased either from the visiting author or from the sponsoring organization through arrangements with the publisher. Organizations should contact McDonald & Woodward at 800-233-8787 for ordering information.
