About David Alexander


Hello and Welcome.  This is a place for me to share nature related lessons, activities and discoveries – most of which take place around NJ and the Northeast. Through my programs I hope to engage curiosity through involvement and encourage a stronger connection with our environment. I’m a full-time naturalist, conservation biologist, educator and author of Hop Into Action, The Amphibian Curriculum for Grades K-4 and Buzz Into Action, The Insect Curriculum for Grades K -4.

New York State Licensed Guide #6250 offering Hunting, Fishing, Hiking & Camping. Skilled in the use of Boats & Canoes. Proud to be part of the New York backcountry and Adirondack Guide tradition. Licensed and certified in first aid, CPR, and water safety.

If you would like to contact me for guiding, program instruction, presentations, outdoor skill seminars or article writing the best place to reach me is at DavidEthanAlexander@Gmail.com.

  1. Both curriculum guides are fantastic. Credit to NSTA for taking a chance on a young environmental educator. Good luck with the blog. You’ve already got entries dating back to the 1990s, enough to keep us busy for awhile. Blog into Action!

  2. Just want to say thanks to David and leading lady Natalia for a pleasantly presented, informative site on diverse Nature topics and what I like to call “living close to the ground,” that critical element missing from too many lives, but kept from being lost by work like this. This blog caught my eye because of the Adirondack St. Regis Canoe adventure (I live near there) posted 9/19/2012, and kept me reading all the articles dating back three years. I’ll be back for more. Best wishes for success of your books and all your activities and relationships.
