Guide and Co-Investigator
Brooks and his wife Kay own and operate Jocassee Lake Tours. From the time Brooks worked as a young man as a commercial fisherman in the northern Gulf of Mexico he has been under 'the spell of the loon'. For the past ten years he has been a keen and constant observer of Jocasssee loons, and it is his persistent interest in and passion for these loons that ultimately drew the attention of loon scientists and Earthwatch. Brooks and Kay are also founders of Jocassee Wild Outdoor Education, a non-profit dedicated to outdoor education within the Jocassee Gorges.
