DAVID MALLERY JOINS THE TEAM AS NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
David comes to Denver and Bluff Lake with over 30 years of experience in youth and nature programming, conservation, development and public policy work. Early in his career he had the great fortune to help design, build and operate a large youth camp. From there, he went on to become a Federal park ranger for nearly ten years. In this capacity he had the opportunity to help design and build campgrounds, day-use parks and wildlife areas. He also developed and operated environmental education programs, took an active role in the re-establishment of the American Bald Eagle in the SE US, and he even worked with paleontologists to recover a mosasaur, from the Cretaceous Period.
David completed a Master’s degree in Public Policy and Administration while working full time as a park ranger. If you ask David what brought him across the country and to Bluff Lake, he will quickly tell you, “This is my dream job. My entire life and career has been a pathway to Bluff Lake.”
