Steve Crone - age unknown,


Has been working with Huskies and dogs ( llamas and horses) for over twenty seven years. His passions and interests since childhood have been pursuing the “natural” and wild side of the environment– either climbing mountains in Colorado and Alaska just to “see” them or studying Alpine Ecology in graduate school out West or being attentive to the organic gardens or spending quality time with his husky pups. Steve’s professional life has always been involved with showing people the beauty of nature and teaching them how to really “get close” to the experience both for the benefit of our natural world and for the personal growth of the individual. Steve (they say) is a bit of a character, and a very talented trainer of both sled dogs and horses- llamas too. He also enjoys feeding hummingbirds out of his mouth and sometimes entertaining guests with his witty humor. He owns and runs New England Dogsledding and the Telemark Inn Wilderness Lodge just outside of Bethel Maine.
