Rick Kesseli has been running, biking, x-country skiing and generally exploring the Blue Hills since arriving in Milton 20 years ago.  Rick is currently the Chair of the Biology Department at the University of Massachusetts, Boston and has research projects funded through the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Agriculture that address issues concerning biodiversity, evolutionary biology of both domesticated crops and wild species and plant-microbe interactions.  Within the Blue Hills, he and his students have worked on both invasive and endangered species projects.  He has given interpretive walks to multiple individuals and groups over the last several years and looks forward to doing more with the many Friends of the Blue Hills interested in preserving our natural environment.
