Mark Warren is a lifelong student of nature and primitive lore. Growing up in the piedmont of Georgia, he was in love with the forest. After being graduated from the University of Georgia in art and chemistry/ pre-med, he served 10 years as naturalist / environmental educator for The Georgia Conservancy and 17 years as wilderness director for High Meadows Camp.
He is the author of Magic from the Woods and The American Wilderness Awards, both activity books in nature study. In 1980 he designed and taught Georgia’s first statewide environmental education workshops for public schools which reached thousands of teachers. For this the National Wildlife Federation honored Mark as Georgia’s Conservation Educator of the Year.
Mark’s canoeing experience comes from 25 years of exploring creeks and rivers and whitewater racing. He has been the Dixie Division Open Canoe Slalom Champion 5 times, and in 1998 became the U.S. National Champion in the Slalom/Downriver combined.
His relationship with bow and arrow is intimate and atavistic, though he no longer chooses to hunt. Archery is an art to him. In 1999 Mark won the men’s division of the World Championship Longbow Tournament.
Mark has composed music for the Academy Theater, the Atlanta Symphony, and for public concert, the most recent of which raised money for the Cherokee people of Georgia.
Mark has completed a series of books on his lifework as a naturalist, including hundreds of original activities for teachers and students alike. Each book is richly illustrated and enhanced by definitive photographs.
