About Joe:

Joe’s live performances have been featured at hundreds of historic places associated with TR’s life and legacy, including TR’s New York City Birthplace, the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site in Buffalo, New York, and Roosevelt’s beloved home, Sagamore Hill, nearby Oyster Bay, Long Island. From Muir Woods National Monument in California to Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge in Florida and from Baxter State Park in Maine to the Oregon Historical Society, Joe travels the country at a Rooseveltian pace.  Joe has been featured at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City and served as the body model for the seated naturalist Roosevelt bronze sculpture in Roosevelt Memorial Hall at the Museum. Featured at the official National Park Service Centennial Celebration at Yellowstone National Park, Joe’s Theodore Roosevelt is based on solid scholarship and delivered with Rooseveltian showmanship. Joe’s performances as TR are endorsed by the Theodore Roosevelt Association – www.theodoreroosevelt.org

Sustainable Events Initiative

Sustainable Events Initiative

SPACE hosts a multitude of events throughout the year. As an organization focused on land conservation and environmental protection, we’ve launched an initiative to focus on sustainability efforts during our fundraisers and small events. With help from local composting company, Atlas Organics, we’re making composting a priority at our two big fundraisers (Bonnamoo and A Shucking Good Time). Thanks to local artists Frankie Zombie and Maggie MacDonald, you won’t miss the compost cans at these events! Want to help make our events more sustainable? Share a ride and bring your own non-glass tumblers with you. Working together we can make an impact!
