Daniel Gore is a Colorado native and grew up irrigating fields with the very water he now manages for recreation. Growing up hunting, fishing, building jeeps for off roading, and boating are some of his favorite childhood memories; he continues that tradition with his kids and the hounds every chance he gets.
He spent the last couple of decades devoting his life to the pursuit of agricultural perfection. With education and training in Automotive and Diesel repair, Natural Resources, Forestry, and Wildlife Studies as well as a background and long family history in agriculture, concrete and construction he is a genuine Jack of all trades. He joined the Heritage team to help fix what needs fixing and help build the future. In a day and age where youth are tied to screens and computers, his goal is to preserve an outdoor heritage and provide recreation and connections to natural places just like he had growing up.
