Tom Healy grew up in Rockville, MD, a short walk away from Rock Creek Regional Park. He spent his youth exploring the park looking for snakes, frogs, crayfish, turtles, and any other creature he could discover. Tom feels blessed to have had Rock Creek as a part of his “backyard”. As an adult, he is an active hiker and fly-fisherman. These activities have brought him to numerous National Parks and Forests. He has also fished and hiked in many international locations including New Zealand and Patagonia.
“As an NPT Board member, I am excited about having an impact on park preservation and a role in promoting youth participation in our public lands. All my life, I have enjoyed the benefits of these lands. Now, I want to do my part to ensure they exist for generations to come and are available to everyone.”
