David Goldstein moved to Dayton in the mid-1980s. For his first 10 years in the area he lived just near the Beavercreek Wetlands, recognized their value as a regional resource, and joined BCWA early in its history. As housing and development have continued to expand onto the Dayton landscape, that sense of value for the remaining natural lands has only grown. Thus, when he retired in 2020 after 34 years in the Department of Biological Sciences at Wright State University, as a teacher, physiology researcher, and department chair, Dr. Goldstein was pleased to join the continuing efforts of BCWA by joining its Board. Dr. Goldstein continues to be involved in a variety of science education initiatives, and he and his dog have walked many miles, rain or shine, during the months of pandemic. He looks forward to getting back to traveling (including visits to his children, dispersed across the country) and to playing squash and racquetball.
