Professional recommendations for Dan

Dan was a core member of the Wild Nights Out volunteer team for many years. He brought a keen interest in natural history, enthusiasm for environmental education and crucially had a calm manner and easily built strong working relationships with colleagues, young people and visiting staff. I could always rely on Dan to turn up at short notice and step into the breach when there were last minute changes to plans. Dan’s commitment to children, young people and the natural world has gone from strength to strength and I look forward to working with him again in the future.- Richard Irvine: Outdoor Practitioner
Dan led this discovery level John Muir Award with passion and enthusiasm and careful planning. He met the participants where they were at, and deepened their awareness of the natural world through fun, reflection and collaborative activities. I look forward to working with Dan again on his next John Muir Award project.- Shona Fernyhough: Environmental playworker
