Craig Deutsche

As a volunteer in the Carrizo Plain National Monument, Craig Deutsche became fascinated with the history of the area and together with another colleague undertook an extensive oral history project with former residents. In a former life he was a high school teacher, a distance runner, and a desert conservation advocate. In his present life Craig humors a birdwatching wife and continues to volunteer in the Carrizo Plain National Monument. He insists that the stories of the Plains found him; he did not find them.
