Dave Ritondo — Program Assistant
A native to Washington County, Maryland, Dave moved to Delmarva 11 years ago to retire from his tree farm business and be closer to family. Dave has been a friend of the Bays for years and has participated as a volunteer in projects including the Center’s Horseshoe Crab Survey, the Inland Bays Cleanup, various shoreline stabilization projects, and even served on the Center’s Water Use Plan Implementation Committee. Not only does he volunteer 30+ hours a week for seven local causes, but he also works part-time as the Center’s Program Assistant!
Dave is the manpower behind the Don’t Chuck Your Shucks program: driving to 20+ restaurants, collecting used oyster shell, and delivering it to the curing site. Learn more about this “dirty job” here »
