Dr. Dave’s Blue Beard Challenge


David Cox with ELC Executive Director, Barbara Schlitt-Ford

Former Environmental Learning Center (ELC) volunteer and staff Naturalist in the 1990’s, David Cox has been an avid supporter of the ELC for many years. The kids he enjoyed teaching as a Naturalist dubbed him Dr. Dave.

Now, Dr. Dave wants to continue his support and raise unrestricted funds for future successes of the ELC through the Dr. Dave’s Blue Beard Challenge. After ELC Executive Director Barbara Schlitt Ford’s success during her Blue Hair Challenge, David was inspired to continue the campaign.

As a longtime ELC enthusiast, Dr. Dave served on the ELC Education Committee and helped design the boardwalks and canoe dock. More recently, he was a member of the ELC Master Planning Group, conducted environmental surveys and currently serves on the ELC Landscape Advisory and Interpretive Plan Committees.

Dr. Dave’s goal is to raise $10,000 by the end of August.

“My reason for proposing Dr. Dave’s Blue Beard Challenge is that for over 20 years now I have worked to make the ELC a success, and this challenge is one more effort to add to ELC’s successes,” said David.
