“Livin’ the Dream, folks!”Rick
Rick Travis, 2018
I retired from my business career in 2017 with a firm conviction to return to my true passion, which were the environmental sciences. Way way way back in time, when I could fill the tank of my Pinto wagon for about 12 bucks, I earned a Bachelors’ Degree in Forest Management and an MBA, both from Stephen F. Austin State University.
Economic forces required I take the business road for a while, to put bread on the table and get our 3 kids through college.
Fast forward to 2017. Mission accomplished. Time for a reinvention.
My wife and best friend Lisa and I joined the Blackland Prairie chapter training class in 2018. Since graduating we’ve been relatively active in the chapter, coordinating and/or participating in some special restoration projects, “doing our time” in various positions of responsibility within the chapter, and just having a blast immersing ourselves in nature with wonderful folks that share our love and passion for the natural world.
Livin’ the dream folks.
