His passion for the environment helps him motivate and encourage others to join in. 

Clay is required to volunteer since he is a Master Naturalist, however, he has gone above and beyond by spending hundreds of hours volunteering at Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center in the last year alone. You can see him participating at other community events and council meetings advocating for positive change within his community.

Recently, the city of Denton became the first Monarch USA City in the state of Texas. This movement was started during a council meeting where Clay asked the Council to consider becoming one. It is difficult to see this happening without Clay's innovative and involvement.

In Clay's free time he enjoys building outdoor labyrinths for people to visit. These are another way Clay is able to get people outside and help them enjoy the environment.
