Seth joined NPCA’s California Desert Field Office as a Program Manager in 2014.

He developed a love of arid lands while visiting Arizona’s national parks as a child with his father. Clambering up saguaro-strewn slopes, observing iridescent hummingbirds and surprising coatamundis in a desert wash instilled a desire to protect special places. Prior to working at NPCA, Seth shared his passion for the natural world for thirteen years as an outdoor educator and classroom teacher at the New Jersey School of Conservation, Fresh Air Fund, Lorado Taft Field School, and Children’s Community School. He has also served eight years on the board of the San Fernando Valley Audubon Society, most recently as conservation chair and vice president. Seth’s environmental writing has appeared in a variety of newspapers and magazines, including National Parks. He is especially fond of the wildlife, starry skies, and compelling geological formations of the Mojave National Preserve and Joshua Tree National Park.
