Relieving Keeper (Resident Manager)- Jon Clark- July 2023-

Jon has a long and deep connection with the island, and spent many days as a young adult with his mother Pamela and father, Charles Clark, members of the St. Martin Island Community. Jon lived on the island in 1985-1986 and helped Rev.Dave Wilson (the first SMIC resident Keeper who lived on the island for 10 years) care for the animals, maintain fences and buildings, and welcome groups. Jon also assisted his father in replacing the piles and timbers on the jetty. Jon is very excited to be back and we are grateful to have him!
