After 42 years in the teaching field he retired to Sun City, Arizona. He is currently active in so many things we can barely get him to meetings!

He has offered programs on bird identification, threats to birds of concern, plant families, and Arizona geology at three of the county parks, Estrella Mountain, Cave Creek and White Tank Mountain Park. Joe also helps with the Important Bird Area’s Tres Rios B & M survey and participates on Christmas bird counts.  If that were not enough, he does the annual Maricopa County Aquatic Bird Survey with AZ Game & Fish.
