Chuck officially began his tenure as Director of the Station in 1993 but his employment history at the station goes back as far as 1979 when he began working at the station in a student work study position while a freshman at Juniata College. Chuck completed his doctorate from Penn State University studying the effect of forest management practices on songbird communities. In addition to his administrative duties coordinating the development and daily operations of the station, Chuck also teaches Ornithology, Vertebrate Zoology, Wildlife Management, Forestry and the Sense of Place seminar at the station.
