From the time he was a toddler, Dean Neubek loved visiting the bunnies at the Nature Discovery Center. While on his way to earning the rank of Eagle Scout, he also spent many weekends here assisting in scouting projects such as updating the aviary and improving the paths. He loved being outdoors and working with his friends to help the community.

Dean had an insatiable appetite for knowledge and an enormously kind heart. He lived by the motto “You do you” and once tweeted, “I would just love if people respected other people. Full stop.

We hope you enjoy your time in the Dean Neubek Critter Classroom, and we wish you a life filled with discovery of nature, love of animals and respect for all people.
