Daniel Schultz

Master Naturalist and Habitat Team Leader. In 2009, hearing Douglas Tallamy talk about his book "Bringing Nature Home," it became clear that the cherished woods and wildlife of the U.S. were in peril, and something had to be done about it. Daniel trained as a Master Naturalist volunteer, and thanks to buckthorn pulls at local and regional parks, the poor quality of even our few remaining wild spaces became evident.

He has served on the Environment and River Gorge Committee in the Longfellow area of Minneapolis since 2015, helping with grants and efforts to add pollinator habitat and raingardens, and starting an informal neighborhood Gardening for Wildlife Mentorship program, matching experienced gardeners with new gardeners, and sharing plants and practical knowledge. In 2020, Daniel secured a BWSR state grant through the Lawns to Legumes program, making Longfellow an official Demonstration Neighborhood, which included teaching about native plants and Bumblebee habitat, and reimbursing native plant purchases for participating residents. From 2016 to 2021, he brought together all these neighborhood projects and officially certified the largest neighborhood in Minneapolis as a Community Wildlife Habitat through the National Wildlife Federation. 173 residents, 5 schools, and 6 organizations certified, in effect adding a whole city park’s size of native plants and wildlife habitat.

Daniel continues to teach and plan interactive events that encourage wildlife and native plant restoration, trusting that by re-connecting people to nature, the world can be a better place for humans and wildlife.
