Daniel Newberry has written features for Jefferson Journal since 2006 and has been a regular freelance contributor to the Mail Tribune since 2008. Given the choice, he'll try out and write about anything that happens outdoors. Well, almost anything. In his day job he is the Executive Director of the Siskiyou Field Institute. His master’s degree and professional background are in hydrology and watershed management. In his distant past, he was the music director and a DJ at his college radio station, so he lives vicariously through JPR. He and his wife, Caroline, have lived in the Applegate Valley since 2001.
